“You’re too Awesome for anyone’s good!”
“You did more for me than you’ll know. Ever.”
“I have learned more from you than I have most people my entire life.”
“You have given me a future.”
“I have to say you are easily the best teacher I’ve ever had. You challenged me on a daily basis, and that’s something hardly any teacher does.”
“You were able to push me in class and engage my curiosity outside of the classroom.”
“The witty jokes (both planned and improvised) had me laughing - and I love to laugh. I want to tell you I really loved and looked forward to going to your classes. I've had very few teachers who have impacted my academic ‘career’ as much as you have and there is no way I can thank you for that. The time we spent and the lessons I learned, I hold invaluable.”
“[Y]ou forced me out of my comfort zone, out of just sitting quietly in the corner. I already feel that that ability is aiding me at ______ University.”
“Your positive energy and creative approach touched on topics which needed to be addressed.”
“Thanks for helping me grow as a person and as a teacher.”
“[T]hank you for an amazing one year of education, you quickly became the toughest teacher I have ever had and my favorite, and taught me the most beneficial course I probably will ever take. I'm impressing…with my knowledge…and ability to think on a deeper level. I am very saddened by the fact I won't have you as a teacher again…”
