As I read the letter I wrote to you earlier this year, I found it interesting because I spoke a lot about how much I didn’t enjoy science. And thinking back I definitely do remember detesting science class. But this year it has been one of my favorite classes to come to. I look forward to your class every single day. I think I look forward to it for multiple reasons. I enjoy reading the new quote you put up, I love the people in the class, I like the vibe and atmosphere of the entire room, and I am always intrigued by what new crazy lesson I know I am going to learn that day.
It’s sad to say, but for so much of this year, school has made me feel dumb and overwhelmed, but I always knew that in your class I could for once feel important and treated equally. I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing that was to me. I always felt like I could go to you if I didn’t understand a new concept and you wouldn’t give up explaining until I understood. I feel like I can honestly say that I will remember most of the concepts I learned this year for the rest of my life, and I don’t remember a single thing from chemistry just last year.
Your teaching style and technique made me want to work hard and learn. Also your concern for everyone just as human beings, made me feel more comfortable in the classroom and I was never afraid to be myself and speak whenever I had something to say. I think that is true for everyone in that class. Everyone felt trusted and comfortable so everyone’s personalities shined. That is probably why I feel I have become such good friends with the people in our class. Our class has a really special bond that no other physics class can really understand. Thank you so much for an absolutely incredible year. I will always remember you as the teacher that taught me to learn to enjoy science.
