Thoughts from some of my collegiate students on who I AM:
Good Evening Tiffany,
If I don’t get another chance to say it, you have been a wonderful instructor. I love having people like you that are passionate about their work. It keeps a level of interest in the atmosphere.
hey there, I miss your class I look at my life and my environment so much more differently because of you. I want to thank you for everything Ms. B. really.
Dear Professor Buchanan,
I thank you for those wonderful words you sent me yesterday. They are all that I have thought about since first reading them. I was so overwhelmed that when I tried to respond, the words would not come. It is rare that I meet someone such as yourself, that I not only feel is an excellent teacher, but someone I have the utmost respect for as a fellow human being. I will carry your words with me wherever I may go and will always remember this class. I may be an older student, but I believe that life itself is a learning process from beginning to end and I love to learn. You have sparked a fire within me, and who knows, once I get my degree, I may spend the rest of my life fighting for equality for everyone. For now, I will try it with one person at a time.
Thank you again,
Thought this might interest you, Tiffany. Your Sociology class has opened my eyes to a whole lot of today’s realities. Thanks to your blunt style of lecture. I like your unbiased gut. Someday, I’ll be like you.
Thank you for your considered and honest words. I am touched by your story and that you shared such personal information with me. First, I want to offer you this… Your class, and even more so your personal communications with me, have broadened my understanding of the subject. I’ve also been very impressed with how well you have maintained your equanimity; this is a topic you have strong reason to be touchy about, yet you have remained steadfastly calm and polite in all your responses to me. That’s a lot of patience; I doubt I could do so well.
I would also like to thank you for being a great professor. You are just the second professor in my online education experience that taught with great passion and knowledge. Thank you for everything.
Thanks for everything. I appreciate how you pushed us to think outside the box and face difficult but true situations. There were uncomfortable moments but they taught me that I can face much more than I think I can.
As an injured soldier returning from Iraq, I want to say thank you. I have listened to your lectures. I have not always been in a position to listen in or participate in live chat, but I have used the chat archive. I have for so long wondered if everybody was asleep and what would it take to wake everybody up and say hey can’t you see what is going on, don’t you see what is happening, We are all in this together. Your lectures and your enthusiasm has helped me so much in my recovery. I hope to download your lectures to my i-pod if they will allow me too. They inspire and give hope. I wish you much success in whatever you endeavor to do, You certainly are a very understanding and knowledgeable person in sociology, I believe that sociology should be taught from the first grade all the way thru high school. We need more understanding and tolerance of each other, and we also need to see clearly what we as mankind need to recognize and face as reality. Bless You.
You have a way of connecting with people even though we were in class through online technology..I always felt like I was sitting there in a room with you. So as you continue to revise and improve your class (and I know you will) keep these qualities. I know you had no way of knowing, but this student went from hating the thought of this class to wishing it wasn’t over so soon. You help your students more than you may realize. I guess what I’m trying to say is over the past five and a half weeks you have taught more than just the subject matter. At least for one student you have taught how to see things in a different light (or as you would say “different lens”). Thank you so much for this class and doing what you do. It has been an Enjoyable class. I hope you keep teaching because if you can teach an old dog new tricks I can just imagine what you’re doing for the puppies!
Thank you so much,
Sanford “Dean” Hainey
