Single quote

As someone who aspires to be a great teacher, I was truly awed and inspired by your infectious enthusiasm – at 8 AM no less – for a subject you have taught dozens of times in a class that, to many, is probably just another requirement to get out of the way. You are a great inspiration to me personally by being someone who achieved excellence in our field, while still maintaining vibrant interests and a fulfilling personal life.
