I know I didn’t really say too much in your class this last eight weeks but I thought I’d tell you a little story. So, I went to what I thought was my 2:30pm class and was about to step through the door until I remembered that it was over....
All the grading and lecture prepping and meeting with students who obviously are not trying very hard in class fade away when you get an email like this. I know that this blog is mostly about research (or is supposed to be), but teaching is a big part of what my week is devoted to. There is the teaching of the craft of research to graduate students, of course. But there is also teaching in the undergraduate classroom--helping them to not only have enthusiasm for the Telecommunications Industry, but also to be able to assess common practices critically.
As with anyone, I sure do love affirmation.
Makes me forget it's forcast to rain most of today! :(
