Yes, it’s that time.

If you look at the bottom of your Final Portfolios, you will see a grading rubric. (likewise for other late documents, if you know who you are)
The final semester grades have just gone up on CUNYFirst.

It’s been a tough semester, but also a rewarding one.

If we were in person, we would have a last class party and a group picture.

I am not good at videos (as you can see!), but I made this one of last-classes I’ve photographed over the years, to give you a taste of what the end of term feels like. It has been great getting to know you and be your teacher, and I have found your words to be truly inspiring. I hope you will go on  to trust in the Process of writing, and know that you will learn from yourSelves as you go on, and get stronger and stronger. Remember: writing is what brought us together!

Have a wonderful and safe summer. And I apologize for the abrupt ending, below.

Now go outside and enjoy the weather, or maybe pick up a pen and write to a friend you haven’t talked to in a while, now that your coursework is done.
