May 2012: A Graduation Farewell from Sabina Sattler
Dear Class of 1974,
As finals’ week comes to an end I am anxiously awaiting the fun of Senior Week festivities, especially because I helped plan some of the activities as Chair of Day Trips. But then when I think of the final days of Convocation and Commencement, my happiness turns bittersweet.
One honor that I was given for Commencement is that I will be one of the Class Council Banner bearers. I will have the privilege to walk at the front of the undergraduate procession. I cannot believe that my four years are over at Cornell. I have made so many memories from the classroom in Ithaca to overseas.
I am proud to say that I am a part of the Teach for America 2012 Corps in Detroit, MI. I will be teaching secondary social studies, although I do not know exactly what grade yet. While teaching my own class, I will also be taking courses at Oakland University as a requirement for my teaching certification. This summer I will be in Chicago teaching one summer school class as a part of an intensive training and TFA preparation for leading my own classroom!
I would like to again thank the Class of ’74 for making my time here at Cornell possible.
