But this semester I met a writing professor who has impressed me with the way he gets the most out of us AND stays happy. He should be a model for all professors because he gets the best out of us and really enjoys his job.
Professor P sends our entire class an email at least once a week with reminders and schedule changes and sometimes just a funny YouTube or a link to a comic.
That shows me he cares about me and all of us. Sometimes it seems like professors just want you to do your work, but my best teachers in high school always went out of their way to treat me personally, and to show me that my education was important to them. Professor P is like that.
One email he sent a couple of weeks ago said, "Hang in there; the big project is nearly done, and I'll be keeping extra office hours in the cafeteria next week after class to help you proofread your new drafts."
Did you hear that? Extra office hours. That's the kind of professor he is, and I think his caring for us makes him happier.
If Professor P is reading this and recognizes himself (I changed the letter of his name), he should feel really pleased that he got through to me!
