It’s kind of funny that when people talk about physics they talk about how hard it is and how stressful it is and I never understood what they meant. I always thought of it as a blow off class. I think it’s because I enjoy it so much. I look forward to it and I have never minded to struggle. And that’s because of you. Your passion for science is unparalleled. I’ve never had a teacher who is always so excited to teach like you are.
I remember at the end of last year you told us all about space and explained E=MC^2. You were genuinely amazed by everything you taught us. I remember going home and explaining everything to my little brother, but I know there is no way I could have explained it as well as you did.
Everytime I learn something that really excites me I go home and explain it to my little brother. I used to do this a lot when I was a younger but since high school I do not do it much. In the past two years I have found myself doing it again, but only for one subject: physics. Your class is the only one that excites me anymore.
I was going to go into engineering next year, but I have recently changed my mind. I realized how much I dislike math. I think you tricked me. You tricked me into thinking a science field was the way to go. In a world where so many people are unhappy with their lives, you tricked me into thinking science was the only path to happiness.You’re enthusiasm is contagious and you tricked me with your passion and the joy you get from science.
I want thank you. I want to thank you for tolerating me. I know I can be a pain and hard to teach. I know I talk a lot and get distracted and ask too many questions. I know I complain a lot. But I want to say thank you. Thank you for your passion and your love for science. I want to thank you for making learning fun again. I want to thank you for everything in the past to two years.
I remember a few weeks ago you told me you were proud of me. I honestly shed a tear. At the time I didn’t understand why, now I’m realizing it’s because I admire you so much. So thank you. Thank you for it all.
