There have been many times when saying goodbye has been difficult for me. However, saying goodbye to In His Footsteps was not the case. Not because I didn’t enjoy my stay or because I won’t miss everyone. On the contrary! Over these past two months I have found myself feeling more and more at home in the crétch and more and more I have felt as though the teachers there are more like family rather than co-workers. I feel so blessed having been given the opportunity to work with such amazing people and I have learned so much and have grown as a person and as an educator.
I feel that there will always be a connection between the teachers and myself and I know that when I return to South Africa there will always be a place for me to stay and that wherever I travel I will carry a piece of Vryground with me because of the amazing teachers I have worked with. Thank you so much Candice for welcoming me into your home with open arms and thank you Teacher Bevan for all the support and for making me feel welcomed into the classroom. Although this goodbye is a sad one, I know that it won’t be forever and that we will meet again!
With all the love in the world, Steven Corona
