I received an A (93%) in my class. My teacher sent me an e-mail congratulating me on my work this last semester. I was pretty excited and proud so I thought I'd post what he wrote for all of you to read.
I wanted to congratulate you on your performance in the course this semester! You clearly were one of my most engaged and thoughtful. I was really moved by your contribution to "This I Believe." I’ve taught at big universities (the University of Minnesota and the University of Wisconsin), private liberal arts colleges (Augsburg College, Bethel College), and here, and I would place your work among the best at any university or college anywhere that I have encountered. Your hard work pays many dividends. You're an inspiration!
"This I Believe" is a website that people can post essays about belief. I did that for part of my final essay. Thanks for a great semester Andy! I only hope to have similar experiences in upcoming classes.
