… You’re going to have to click on these pictures if you want to read them. I got the first one from a student a few years ago. He was in my first Web Design class, and as you might be able to infer from the letter, we had a lot of fun.
… The second one was from a student this year. She struggles in math, asks a million questions throughout my lectures, works pretty hard to get a B out of my class. Sometimes, being constantly interrupted with questions can get a little frustrating, but I keep reminding myself that it’s better than sitting there silently, oblivious, and then when the test comes around staring at it and saying “I don’t get any of this.”
… Just you don’t get the impression it’s all compliments, another student handed me a Christmas card this year and said “Here, my mom made me give cards to all my teachers.”
… And finally, on the Chevron front, from one of the 20-something employees when we were talking about how Oregon doesn’t allow self-serve gas pumping. He says “Having someone fill my gas tank for me would be like a complete stranger giving me a massage.” Has is really been that long since we’ve had full-serve stations?
