Too often I find myself emailing my professors asking for help or complaining about a due date for an assignment. When registration is around the corner I quickly set up a meeting with my advisor so he can put together my schedule for next semester. As students we expect this kind of help from college faculty, but how often do we communicate our sincere appreciation for everything they do?
With Thanksgiving around the corner the UVU PRSSA has put together a service project for all UVU students to be a part of. During the week of November 18-22 students have the opportunity to write a personalized thank you card to any UVU faculty member. Teaching Appreciation Week focuses on expressing our gratitude to the individuals that make it possible for students to gain an exceptional college education. Maybe it’s a professor who’s taught you the meaning of passion and drive or an advisor who’s dedicated to helping you graduate... we ask you to take 60 seconds out of your day to say thank you.
“If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher’s job.” – Donald D.
