"You are one of the best teachers I have ever had.
You definitely influenced my decision
to pursue mechanical engineering.
There was one day that you split the class:
half went to another teacher and half stayed with you.
I guess I got really lucky that day :)"
DAY 29: I got this message on Facebook today from a former student of mine. There's NO greater gift than notes like these. It makes what I do for a living completely worthwhile knowing that students who graduated years and years ago feel this way about me and the effect they say I've had on their life. What more can I say ... if you're a teacher, you know EXACTLY what I mean.
