During the past two days, several former students have stopped by my office to say hello. It was nice to hear from them and see how they are doing. One of the down sides of teaching is that we seldom get to see the progress students make once they leave our classes. Therefore, times like this are special. It is also one of the reasons I like Facebook.
Two former students who are enrolled in a class I am teaching this semester agreed to share their interests. It was great to be able to incorporate them into my classes.
