Farewell to Dr. Meade

Anonymous, Contributing Writer

Dear Dr. Meade,

 

I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me this year.  Although we have been meeting for only a few months, I can say with confidence that you have helped me conquer what I thought was the unconquerable.  This year, I found myself in a difficult family situation, and I wrongly believed that there was no hope in seeking help.  Yet, after confiding in a teacher, I was directed to meet with you.  I cannot thank that teacher and you enough.

There is a certain ease when talking to you that is unlike anything else I have ever experienced with another teacher or psychologist.  It is obvious that you truly care about your students.  What I admire the most about you is that you focus on long-term solutions for your students instead of giving quick, thoughtless, short-term solutions.  Our sessions were easily the best part of my day.  In fact, I can’t remember a time I ever regretted meeting with you.  I feel as if your devotion to my problems is even stronger than that of my former private psychologist.  Your devotion, coupled with your great sense of humor and warm personality, makes you incredibly approachable.  You will be greatly missed.
