  1. i just rec'd this email from a student: Maybe if we sent these kinds of messages "en masse" to our Prez she would have a clue as to hard and dedicated all us "hobby teachers" are.

    Dear _____,
    "I just wanted to let you know that I think that you are a great teacher. I feel that I have learned a lot of interesting things over these past few weeks with being in your class. I find nothing wrong with any of the ways you are teaching our class, in fact I think everything is really great so far this semester.

    I studied very hard and days in advance for the first exam, which was really hard for me since I have never really 'studied' in high school. I had a lot of anxiety prior to the test because I wasn't a very successful test-taker in high school, but I had calmed myself before coming to class knowing that I studied hard and put forth a lot of effort into learning the material...

    I think that some of the reasons I was so successful were because you are very engaging when you lecture, which makes me pay more attention to the information being put out even though it might not seem like I'm very attentive.

    I just wanted you to know that I think the ways that you teach are great and there's nothing I would change about how you teach. Thank you for all the hard work you put forth in class, because I could imagine that it's not very easy."
