Daniel is one of the (many) kids in the Class of 2014 who mystify me when I hear from other teachers that he can be a bit... uh... challenging. I honestly can not think of a single time that Daniel has caused a problem in my class (besides his unwillingness to pay for his workbook). In fact, one of the things I will always remember about Daniel is his gentle nature and friendliness. I will miss his giant smile and warm welcome ("Greetings Friends") next year.
One last thing about Daniel. Whenever my daughter tells me that she is going downtown and I ask: "who are you meeting down there?" and she answers: "[whoever] and [whoever] and Daniel G" I breathe a sigh of relief. With this guy by her side I can sleep peacefully knowing that she is safe and sound.
Thanks for protecting my daughter Daniel. And thanks for being a great guy. Everyone loves a gentle giant... and that describes you perfectly!!
