Recently, a UNCC film producer contacted me by email to share that a former student had mentioned me in comments and to ask if I’d be willing to let them film in my classroom for 10 minutes. I was flattered and agreed and wrote my former student to thank him for his words. I remember Chris well.
There are many reasons I teach, and this is a big one: I’m grateful for whenever a former student suggests they learned something in my classroom. This video played at UNCC’s big annual gala to celebrate teaching. For members of the UNCC community, you may enjoy the entire video and see people you know. To cut to the quick of it, you can pick up at the 3-minute mark, which is where my student begins.
