Good or Bad: This valedictorian speech

“And god, after 18 years of math, aren’t you so sick of formulas?” Pshaw.

What do you think? This wasn’t me, at graduation. I did feel strongly about my (second) high school, and much of it negative, but I wasn’t bitter. I left with a lot of great friends, which made my time less like a prison and more like… well… high school.

But is this video reflecting the sentiment of the majority of our students after senior year? I’ve met a lot of people since high school, and I’d say a good majority of them don’t look back on high school with a sympathetic eye. I do. (I wonder if a lot of high school teachers do. It would make sense, anyway.)

Last year I taught only one senior class. This coming year I’m teaching three.
