(also: does anyone have a good picture of Yuri that you could send me? Love to post it here. I'll give you credit!)
I believe that I have taught Yuri all five years of high school. And I doubt I have had a single problem with him in all those years. He is such an affable, polite, and hard-working guy. One of the things i love about Yuri is his insistence on having complete understanding of the work we are studying. Many times he has come to see me (or sent me an email the night before a test) to ask how to do "this question. And also this one. And just one more". With a work ethic like that, it is no wonder that he has always done so well in my Math class.
Yuri has rocked some pretty nice outfits over the years. Collared shirts. A sweater every now and then. I believe I've even seen him wearing dress shoes a couple times. You're looking good, Y.F.!!
It goes without say that I am a big fan of Yuri. And I'm not the only one. I have heard several of his classmates speak fondly of Yuri over the years (I won't mention any names here). I think we all admire the same things about Yuri: his kindness, his gentle nature, and... admit it... his awesome name! YURI FUJI!! YES!!
It's been such a pleasure to teach you, Yuri! I wish you all the best in your grade 12 year and in the years ahead too. I know that great things await you in the future!
