You have helped to set the foundation for my career. No matter where I go from here, when times get tough, I will reach back to my foundation and remember to love the craft….I want you to know you are a gifted teacher. I recognized that right away. The way you care about your students like a good father cares for his children. The way you push people out of their comfort zones and let them know it’s OK to screw up. You invest in us; mind, body and soul. You are changing my life and that is no small thing. Thank you….What great tools you provide for your students. Thank you for being a wonderful teacher. After four years, I still reach for the class notebooks to remind myself why I love to act.”
