Senior Project Follow-Up


Apologies in advance if I get a little mushy here: but wow. I just watched about 15 senior project presentations, and to say I am impressed is an understatement. Not only were they professionally done, but the projects themselves consisted of meaningful work without a hint of slacking off. I actually feel a little bad that I was surprised by that — but after some slacking off that has been done at the end of this year by many seniors, I’m sure you can understand. I think you may have redeemed yourselves.

I was thrilled to see how enthusiastic the project participants were, and hope you all maintain that enthusiasm and passion throughout the next several years of arduous work it will take to reach stated career goals. I know when I get frustrated as a teacher sometimes I look back to things I wrote and did on the way to becoming a teacher, and it always helps. You must remember why you get into a career in the first place, and tap into that original enthusiasm often so you don’t lose your spark.

Oh, and YES, I caught the 1984 reference in one of your presentations! You know who you are! 🙂 That made my day.

Back to work for me now — I just needed to make sure you all know how much of an impact you just had on me today. Thank you.
