Thoughts from an optimistic former student

Thoughts from an optimistic former student

Thoughts from an optimistic former student is one of the privileges of teaching is getting feedback from my students’ years after I taught them.  Here is a recent example:

I am writing this letter to recommend Professor Ken Strongman for the Adjunct Professor at John F. Kennedy University. He is one of the best professors I have or will ever come across, in all aspects of teaching and personality. I know other students would agree with me.

What I most admire about Professor Strongman is his remarkable ability to stimulate students and add personality to the course material. Students can feel his optimism. He treats everybody with respect and professionalism. His teaching style makes students listen attentively to him. He is also very organized. His assignments were clear and he would provide individual feedback to each student regarding mistakes/strong points.

Professor Ken Strongman does not only teach exceptionally well but he also cares a lot about the level of understanding of each student. He is one of those rare professors that take the extra effort to make sure all students that need extra help are accommodated, despite his busy schedule. He is one of the most caring professors that I have ever known since I started the Paralegal Program at JFK University. He was very courteous and helpful with all the students. I really enjoyed learning from Mr. Strongman, and his qualities are countless.

I understand that is up to the student to be successful in all the assignments, however, the effort of a professor makes all the difference in helping students reach their full potential. If we would have professors like Professor Ken Strongman teaching everything, then I am positive that every student will be eager to learn and go beyond expectations.
