In the Classroom

Recently, a UNCC film producer contacted me by email to share that a former student had mentioned me in comments and to ask if I’d be willing to let them film in my classroom for 10 minutes. I was flattered and agreed and wrote my former student to thank him for his words. I remember Chris well.


There are many reasons I teach, and this is a big one: I’m grateful for whenever a former student says they learned something in my classroom. This video played at UNCC’s big annual gala to celebrate teaching. The video is short; however, if you want to cut to the quick of it, you can pick up at the 3-minute mark, which is where my student begins.
