Dear seniors, I have known some of you since Connections and am so proud of all the reading and writing you have done! Thank you for thinking hard things with me. And congratulations on making it through the two longest, most difficult academic years ever. My advice for the future is to always have a book you are reading for pleasure.

Dear Class of 2021 English Majors & Minor,
I send you & your families my every best wish for your upcoming graduation. You've accomplished so much in these last four years--I hope you're proud of yourselves and take time to reflect on this special time in your lives. Be honest. Be gentle. Try to remember moments when you grew and felt those pains. When you helped someone through a rough patch. And, when you nailed it, scored big time, or felt elated with a success. You'll always be a special group of F&M students to the English Department. And, to those of you whom I've taught: believe it or not, I remember your essays, your comments in class, and your smiles. Please stay in touch!
Congratulations to the class of 2021! I so enjoyed teaching so many of you, so here's a special shoutout to Angel, Izzy, Paisley, Stefan, Connor, Jacob, Audrey, Elizabeth, Franny, Francesca, Sam, Braden, Marcy, Isabel, Hope, and Michaela. Thank you for a memorable 226 so many semesters ago, a turbulent, disrupted seminar last spring, and a wonderful, virtual 204 this past Fall.
I wish you all every exciting opportunity you want for yourselves!
All good wishes,
Congratulations English Majors of 2021! I remember teaching a bunch of you in Fall 2017, when you were new to F&M, and it's been wonderful to watch you take your places as leaders here. While I'm very sad to see you go, I can't wait to welcome you back to F&M as the talented colleagues I know you'll become! Keep reading and writing--and stay in touch! xo, Prof. H/Kabi
