This note came from a woman in one of my classes who had been told by her husband not to mess with their computer because she might break it. "Thank you. You've taught me the MOST important thing: I will not break the computer and I can learn. Yahoo! I really am excited and delighted. Health issues will only slow me a bit. They cannot stop me now that I'm no longer afraid.
"So, thank you. You are so wonderfully calming to your students. you are enthusiastic and extremely kind. Great teacher."
You can imagine how good I felt when reading her note. I have no doubt she will overtake her husband in computer skills. :-)
