Today I did a favor for Hannah, one of the older MfA fellows. Hannah asked me to come to her classroom and evaluate a group of Trigonometry students on their final presentations. My group of students was great. All the presentations were organized, and some of them were very beautiful.
I had a great time asking questions and giving evaluations.
I stayed after the presentations to watch Hannah tell the kids that she wouldn’t be coming back next year. I noted her expert techniques. She told them it has nothing to do with any of them, but it was just a matter of inconvenient location. The students were very attached to her, and wanted to text her and be facebook friends. It was very touching.
