The Center for Education Innovation’s (CEI), Thank a Teacher program allows students to provide unsolicited feedback by sending thank you notes to teachers who make a positive difference in their education and personal development.
Marguerite Ohrtman, senior lecturer and director of MA clinical training in the Department of Educational Psychology’s counseling and student personnel psychology program, recently received one of these “thank a teacher” notes which showcases the impact she has on her students and the positive environment she creates in her classroom.
The note reads:
“Thank you so much for all that you do not only for me and my cohort but for the entire school counseling field in general. You have made such an incredible impact on my life, and I feel so honored and blessed to have been mentored and taught by you. Thank you for continually pushing me out of my comfort zone and making sure my cohort and I make the most out of our program and our experiences within the program. You are the most selfless and hardworking individual I have ever met, and I only hope to inspire and impact my students half as much as you do. Thank you for going above and beyond in your roles and i all aspects of your life. I truly don’t know where I’d be without your guidance and tutelage. Thank you for all you do. It never goes unnoticed”
