Dear Dr. Glaser:

I don't know if you remember my face and name, but I sat in the 3rd row of your Chem 212 class this semester. I want to tell you how much I enjoyed your class. Though at the beginning it seemed like a lot of work, I realize now how much it was worth it. In conversation I can recall facts and statistics about current scientific issues. I can explain new techniques for suturing corneas. What I came away from your class with was a confidence in my ability to talk, think, and reason as a scientist. For the first time I related science to life and came away with a deeper love for it. Thank you for the opportunity to expand my knowledge and to refine my thinking. Have a great summer and the best of luck next semester.
