Inspirational Thank You Notes

Thank Your Teacher

The 2011 3M National Teaching Fellows want you to know that Canadian university professors care about teaching. So they’re saying thanks in the Globe and Mail to the teachers who changed their lives.

You can join them. Write a letter to the teacher who changed your life, in 100 words or less. We’ll post your letter on our bulletin board for everyone to see.

Thank your own teacher
Dr. Hunt

Professor Weir,

The last time we saw each other it was 1990, at Cariboo College. I was a high school dropout returning to school for the first time in 10 years.

You liked my essay on Heart of Darkness, and you asked me something nobody had ever asked me before, “Have you ever thought of going to university?

Well, I did.

Just thought you’d like to know.

Nick Mount
