Patting myself on the back

I am patting myself on the back; I had my questions when I taught my colleague’s core texts in the western tradition class last semester. It was a last minute arrangement.  I didn’t know how our students would respond to a non-Christian teaching them the Bible. I got this email from a student today; I can’t stop smiling, you know!

Dr. Devi,

I would like to know when is the best time to pick up (if there is a time at all!) my exam. I am sure you don’t need the extra clutter in your office and I would really like to re-live some of the conclusions I came to while writing it. The class was extraordinarily enlightening and I hope to carry it throughout the rest of my life. It was easily one of the most important classes I have ever taken.

Thanks, Matthew. You did very well in the class.

It is always a sign of a useful class when you want to re-live the final exam. What a great book, isn’t it? I really enjoyed teaching it as well.
