THANK YOU FROM COLLEAGUE

Submitted by Mike Cassidy 01-Aug-2016

I wathankyount to give a big THANK YOU to Jane Preston for re-arranging her schedule last week to allow me to share the use of her assigned classroom (Room 308).

This saved me the inconvenience of making several trips to transport materials to another building on campus, to a room that was very inadequate for activity-oriented teaching.

My 25 students and I are truly grateful for this fine example of faculty solidarity.
