Thank you for providing me with such an exceptional learning experience and for your care for me as a person. Having had innumerable faculty during my 11 years of full-time, post-secondary education, you are one of the most skilled and impactful professors I have had the good fortune to know. You have brought your expertise, passion for education, burning curiosity for learning, and warmth and kindness to my learning, and I’m grateful. It has been exciting to see an online course designed and facilitated so well and to expand my view of what is possible in my role as a nursing professor. Thank you for bringing so much of yourself and your knowledge to your students, to me. I will always remember it.”
