FORMER TEACHERS I SHOULD SEND THANK YOU NOTES TO WHEN I GRADUATE NEXT SPRING
- •Ms. Connor10th and 11th grade math- always said "and that" at the end of every sentence, which was kind of annoying; a stickler for notation and silence; pretty effective at teaching trig, analytical geometry, and precalc to students who were used to being right without working hard
- •Mrs. Sinclair12th grade calculus- this woman is a saint. Sure, she taught me the basics of derivation which got me through an Econ degree at a prestigious research institution, but more importantly she somehow managed the abominable in class behavior of several shithead 17 yo boys who were also in our homeroom.
- •Omid SafiModern Islamic Society professor second semester freshman year. It was a medium sized lecture (~50 people) and I was a mediocre student, so I doubt he remembers me, but he spoke with grace and humor about all kinds of things. Really made me a more critical thinker when it comes to news/advertising messages, esp wrt religious & racial "differences". Inspiring at vigil for three Muslim students shot last spring (no religion has words for this). Also want to tell him about playing vball w Iranians
- •Mike AguilarGreat teacher. Sorry I dropped the ball on the fiscal challenge project
- •Nina MartinEven though urban geog disappeared from my main interests, still loved your class and your support as I wrote my surf proposal. Def made me more conscious of urban issues, more thoughtful voter
- •Clark greyForced me to teach myself how to read academic papers quickly and for the important content
