And Not Think About What Others Get
Dear Dr. Toupadakis,
I took Chemistry 2A and 2B with you the past year, and I think
that I have been very lucky having you as an instructor. I was very
close to an A in 2A and got a B in 2B which I am proud of. Thank
you for being an inspiring teacher, and brightening up lectures
and exam reviews. I never got a chance to speak with you during
your office hours, but I have corresponded with you through e-mail
before. I was going to e-mail you after the first midterm in 2B,
because I was having a very bad day, the day of the exam review.
I felt like I was not going to do well on the exam, and some inspirational
words from you during the review really lifted my spirits. You said
that if a B is the best I could do then I should be proud of it,
and not think about what others get. Thanks for
the words of wisdom, they really helped me.
I would also like to ask you a question, I was wondering if you
were currently doing any research. That is because when you describe
chemistry it is interesting, and I would like to see how it applies
to research. I wanted to know if there is a possibility that I could
assist in research whether it is your research or any of your colleagues'
research. Thank you for your time, I hope you have a great summer!
