Thank you for being such an important part of the “village” taking care of all of our students.
Realizing that by asking students what they want has made a huge difference in results. In one class, I feel fairly certain that about a dozen students would have failed or just eked by. Because I took a different approach after your session and “asked” all those students graded a “C” or better. Amazing!
So many times, I share something with others and eventually my issue gets lost; it becomes about the other. I’ve appreciated that you listen to me and make it all about me.
