I wanted to write and thank you for what a great experience this class was for my boys. They both learned a lot that has been very useful already. I especially appreciated the "Client Projects" that I as a parent got to be involved in and how they were a genuine help to me and were a great "bonding" opportunity with the boys and what they were learning. And, as you heard, I even learned how to make basic Power Point slides with Google images for my talks. [My son] really benefited from your style and way of relating to the students. It was just the right amount of humor and "laid backness" and structure and content for what he was ready for.
Thanks again, it was a blast.
I just wanted to let you know that this school year with history has been the best so far. I never really enjoyed history but after taking your class and learning about the Cold War, I really appreciate history. Thanks for being an amazing and fun teacher (a reallllly fun teacher at that actually).
