To every professor that I had at F&M - Thank you for actually caring about my education and for all of the countless office hours, whether it was helping me master the material or just asking how I was. Thank you for providing me with the tools to read, write, and analyze critically and for challenging me to do my best. Thank you for being effective educators - changing up your teaching techniques between powerpoints, readings, class discussions, group projects both in and out of the classroom. Now that I am in graduate school, I have realized that the professors at F&M are truly like none other and miss them very much. I am so proud to say that F&M professors put their students first. I hope that my message encourages all of you on the toughest of days to know that your hard work is truly appreciated. Special shout out to the biology and chemistry departments!
