A very long time ago, when I was a student at Iowa City High School, I was asked by a teacher to tutor one of his sons in math. Said son was smart, but simply couldn’t do math beyond the level of arithmetic. He was hoping that personal tutoring would help.
It was Thursday late, and John came by my office (Concordia college in Moorhead, MN), representing part of the textbook supply chain. He looked at me, then the name on the door, and hesitantly asked if I was from Iowa City. When I said yes, he informed me that he was my very first student. And then I recognized him. Much taller and of course 40 years older, I knew him. And I couldn’t help but think of his father, a wonderful choral director and soloist.
A few months ago during the holidays, I received an e-mail from a student enrolled in my first collegiate class teaching managerial accounting at the University of Iowa in 79-80.
This year on LinkedIn, I have connected with about 100 of my former students from BGSU.
It’s been a good year for me.
If you are one of my former students, please connect. Send an e-mail, attach a photo (then and now), and mention who your closest classmates were.
