What some former students have said:

 

“. . . one of the most intelligent, engaging, and influential teachers I have ever encountered.”

—J.D.

 

“The level of enthusiasm that you teach with has been inspiring . . . You have been a wonderful mentor to me over the past four years, and I am so grateful for everything you have taught me.”

—M.Q.

 

“The impact you made on my studies and my life are incalculable . . . I certainly wouldn't have been able to engage my education to even half the capacity that I was allowed to were it not for your guidance and support.”

—J.B.

 

“Thank you for turning a class I was dreading . . . into something I loved . . . I have no one to thank but you for giving me the motivation to go outside my comfort zone.”

—M.A.

 

“. . . one of the only teachers I've ever had that gave us a truly meaningful and comprehensive practical task . . . something you've inspired me to try to do as much as possible in my own teaching.”

—J.H.
