I want to share with you my observations of your work here this year...

You continue to be a talented teacher.  What you were able to do with the students you worked with during your short time here was amazing.  Not only teaching them math but helping them understand why math is important and relevant in their lives.  Not just teaching these kids but building relationships with them.  Not just working with other staff members but sharing your vast knowledge base and experiences with them.  You are a very gifted teacher and the students and staff here were so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you this year.  I really regret not having said these things to your face but they are no less true via e-mail.

Thank you, Rob, for your hard work and all that you did for us this spring.  I so hope we can work together down the road as you are truly one of the most knowledgeable and visionary math geeks I have ever met.

Chris,
