After scoring a perfect 100% on her Calculus final, thirteen year old Amélie received a small white envelope from her mathematics professor. Inside was a card with the following hand-written note...
You had a great year in math in 2017/2018!!
I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to teach you.
In my career, I’ve taught a lot of wonderful kids, but there have been a handful that really stood out from the rest.
Call it 2<X<6.
These students have been exceptionally bright, but also hard working, humble, giving, and bring a great attitude to class each and every day. Also, they’ve had a great sense of humor and willingness to help their fellow students.
You are in that special group, no doubt about it! I wish you all the best. You’re going to achieve great things some day!” - Mr. B
