an email to my math teacher

Thanks for your response, Louis!  Sorry for the delayed response to the
delayed response - I just got this! (Maybe I should check my email a bit more
often...)

 

Approximately when will you have the final grades available?  I remember
you saying that you grade on a curve, but unless you grade on a LOOP, from my
personal caculations, I am thinking I ended up with around a 65% for the class. 
That's what I get for choosing summer to be the first term to go full time! 
Frustrating, because I had held a solid 4.0 up until this quarter, when I
succeeded - between work and The Plague - to not only lose my 4.0 but also my
financial aid.

 

But that's just me venting and whining.

 

Anyhoot, I thank you for being such a fantastic professor.  I only wish I
would have had the pleasure to have had you during a term that I had been able
to apply myself to my full potential - thusly dazzling you with my mathematical
prowess! (strike superhero pose here: _____)  I wish you the best of luck and
joy in your new position!

 

Sincerely,

 

Aubrey Keating

thank you, it helped knowing that the teacher has one helluva sense of humor - we would laugh all the time in class.

Nice e-mail - is there any chance you can take it over? You know - never give up, never surrender, show'm who's boss? My sister repeated a critical course for college thrice before getting her diploma a year and a half later. In her case it was mostly parental pressure to finish but in your case - well, show'm who's boss! You are! Maybe?

Ok, shutting up now - have a great show!

i've always believed that everything happens for a reason. i think part of the 'reason' behind this:

i couldn't learn a thing from my chem teacher, even when i did show up, and i've always been a fast learner. i just could NOT follow her lectures (and hearing other people talk, i wasn't the only one.) she's leaving to go back to school after this quarter, so when i retake the class, it'll definitely be under a different instructor, when she had the monopoly on chem 050 until now. i was also scheduled to take schaumberg for chem 111 in the fall, and had to switch that - after talking to a VERY intelligent coworker that i hold in very high regards - schaumberg is even harder to learn from, and taught everyone so many things wrong that the chem teacher he had after that actually took his test to the head of chemistry to turn in the instructor.

so now i've been spared a fate of dealing with teachers that will hinder my future instead of help it along.

I'm sure professor love you because you write thoughtful emails that put a smile on people's faces, unlike the net/text msg speak many undergrads like to send out at the last possible minute.

aww, thank you :) i can't believe all the crap that the professors have to deal with. i mean hell, it's college, and there's still people arguing about idiotic stuff.

i can't believe the gall of some of the people.

i've always treated my professors with utmost respect. though it's difficult to make sure to capitalize the beginning of all sentences since i never do on here.
