Professor Pietszak
...She is by far the most knowledgeable professor I have ever known. There is no subject she is not qualified to teach. There is no question on any topic that you could ask her that she won't have an answer for. Sne never raised her voice, never talked with an unkind tone to her voice, never not listened to anyone. She has my utmost respect and admiration. She, too, was instrumental in my success.

As I said, they all made a difference somehow, whether listed here or not, some in a good way, some not so good. I've had teachers who were born to teach. Any student who was fortunate enough to be in the classrooms of those teachers always benefited in some way. They gave us knowledge and understanding that we've carried with us. On the other hand, I've had teachers who completely missed their calling altogether. That is always unfortunate.
