I enjoy listening to kids. They tell you what they think, often without the diplomacy and subtleness that adults use in conversation. You very rarely walk away from a conversation with a student wondering, “what is he/she really trying to tell me?” This week we were reviewing the results of our annual alumni survey that we send to our graduates who are in grade 9 at another school. This quote came back from one of them: “The teachers are there [at this student’s new high school] because it is their job to teach, whereas at KCS the teachers are there for you.” It made me proud.
