Welcome to my Blog!

Thank you for teaching us!

How’s it going Professor? Where will you be teaching at CSUS this year (2008)? We, the students appreciate every little thing that you have done in our classes. We will always remember the lectures and the jokes and the theories and inspiration that you brought with you. I believe that many students enjoyed your class as I have myself. I was never tired or bored but always fascinated by the voice that you projected with enthusiasm while you spoke in front of us. You’re the best teacher that I had so far and hopefully I’ll see you around campus. You’re not just an excellent teacher but also a great mentor and a great friend. Thank you again for your inspiration in teaching and I’ll see you around my friend. (Email me when your book comes out, I’ll be one of the first to purchase it.)

Your student, Leng, a Junior at CSU Stanislaus.

Dear Professor,

I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed your class. After taking classical theory in the fall semester I was left with the feeling that I had made a huge mistake in choosing to major in Sociology. I feel that what I got more out of that class was an education in conspiracy theory and the feeling that all sociologists share the same beliefs and values. Of course those particular beliefs and values that were shared were very extreme and alienating. I felt like I did not belong. I talked to my advisor about the concerns and even got the forms necessary to change majors, but decided to give it another chance. In your contemporary theory class not only did you share and expand upon the area of Sociology in which I fit, but you helped me to develop a better knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the other theories from classical theory as well. I hope to have the opportunity to take a class from you again in the future.

Thank you,

Stephanie Whitefield (Senior, 2008)
