Sunshine Learning Miami Class of 2022 Graduation Ceremony Speech by Adriana Zeppenfeldt
Good afternoon, Sunshine Family and Homeschool Community,
I would like to thank the FTX arena and The Miami Heat once again for hosting our graduation and helping us make this day as memorable as possible. I would like to also thank all our staff and the work they have done throughout the year.
We are here celebrating our student’s accomplishments and the future success that awaits them.
Two years ago in this iconic arena I told you my story about how, with passion and determination, I became a teacher. Today, I want to reveal further insight on the history of Sunshine. Sunshine Learning Miami was a project that we worked and dreamed of since our early days of homeschooling from our living room.
From the start, we decided that we were tired of the traditional education system. We refused to follow the molds that preceded us because we simply did not agree with many of its aspects.
As a result, we were devoted to finding a way to combine the principles of regular schooling while adding a twist to it. A twist that would inspire and motivate the kids to come to school every day with a smile on their face.
Something that would go beyond a simple textbook and worksheet lesson.
At Sunshine, we uncover the value of friendship. We prioritize the relationships we build with one another and the things we can learn from each other. We find that we are better, healthier, and more sociable human beings when we let go of the stress of having an exam or a load of homework.
These are the sort of things that we envisioned to be emphasized in our day to day. The things that we thought were of value for our kids to take with them once they stepped out of our doors and into the newest chapter of their book.
We knew that they were not going to leave with the best experience or outlook if they spent their nights studying for an upcoming exam. They were going to forever remember their Nasa trip, or the Bush Gardens field trip, or The Crystal Science Experiment… Or even the way they were just about to graduate with their childhood best friends… This is the one where our three founding fathers graduate.
My boys, you made it.
This would have never been possible without some of our most treasured students and their families. To the families of Cesar Bello, Jonathan Faria, and Eric Jacquemin– you were the first to entrust your children into our system and we are forever grateful. We have seen them grow just as much as they have seen us grow, and while it hurts to see them close this chapter of their lives, we could not be prouder about how they will continue once they flip the page. As you can imagine, we are so proud of each and every one of our graduates here today.
This is a huge milestone, that you have accomplished here today, and we could not be more grateful for you to have shared this part of your lives with us. For you to have impacted us the way we hopefully impacted you.
As part of my message to you guys– I would like to encourage you all to believe in yourselves and not be afraid to think outside the box. As you can see, with just a little push we managed to adjust the learning process in a way that gave big results. We found a lost treasure because we decided to keep trying, dreaming.
So, dare to be unique, to think outside the norm, and to follow your dreams no matter how crazy they may seem… Thank you
Graduation Ceremony Class of 2019
This April 3rd, Sunshine Learning Miami is partnering up with the American Airlines Arena and the Miami Heat to bring to you an unforgettable graduation ceremony experience. For the first time ever, homeschoolers will have the opportunity to spend their special day in this iconic location. We are extending the invitation to all seniors, kindergarten, elementary and middle schoolers.
On this day, participants will have the opportunity to walk the ceremony with their cap and gown as they receive the diploma for their grade level. Afterwards, the students will be able to take pictures with the Miami Heat Championship Trophies and Burnie, the mascot while enjoying delicious snacks. Once the ceremony is over, the fun will continue as we will get to enjoy the game featuring the Miami Heat vs. the Boston Celtics and see our very own Dwayne Wade in his second to last performance of the regular season at the AAA. On top of all the exciting aforementioned activities, Sunshine Learning Miami and The Miami Heat will give every person a Post-Game Free Throw pass to go down to the court and shoot one Free Throw. Needless to say, it will be an incredibly memorable night.
We hope to see you there!
