This summer I received an e-mail
from a former student that I taught during my years as a New York City
middle school science teacher. She found me through a web search and
I wanted to drop you
a line to let you know that you made a profound impact on my life. I
the subject matter in your classes to be the most interesting I had
had. I did very well too; I think I almost always got A's from you!
then on, I knew that science was my destiny. I stayed with the
sciences ever since, and I graduated from UConn and became a pharmacist
1983. (I moved to CT right after Tetard and have lived here ever
I am now married and the proud mother of 2 little boys, ages 3 and 6.
This is the reason teaching is a
committment to upholding a high standard of scholarship, continued
growth and learning through research and professional development in
the service of others.
The power of one teacher can have a profound impact on many students,
the power of one teacher educator can impact a small city.
Just wanted to say thanks! Drop me a line sometime
if you remember me :)
