An Open Letter To: A Beloved Professor

To my professor,

Since the first class I had with you during my sophomore year, you have stood out to me as a professor. You are continuously pouring your heart out to your students in ways that many professors do not. You’re not only there for us on an academic basis, but also on a personal level.

I feels as though I can go to you about anything in my life and you will listen without judging. I know this because you have been vulnerable with us. You share your ups and downs in life and are not afraid to tell us when you are having a bad day, bad week, or bad month. Yet, you remain positive and energetic. I strive to be like that in my life.

You have made my Communication classes enjoyable and personal, which has helped me gain more skills during my time at Eastern. You have given your students multiple chances to apply what we have learned to our own life, which helps me to really understand the information. It has helped me understand myself more and better my relationships in life.

I want to thank you for being the person you are and for the ways you treat those around you. It is obvious that you care deeply for those in your life, whether they be your students, faculty members, or your personal relationships.

You do not let a bad day stop you from loving those around you or teaching your class material in a way that students can engage in deeply.

You have made my time beneficial, not only in a classroom setting but as a friend and someone I strive to be like in my life. I will miss you greatly when I graduate in May, but I know it will not be the end. You have taught me so much and I will forever remember the things I have learned from you.

Do not stop being who you are, because I see you as a great and wonderful person, as I know others around you do as well. I look forward to these last few months at Eastern with you as my professor. I want to say thank you for everything you have done for me over the last four years.
