eighteen years.

in a week i will have completed eighteen years of teaching. the first class i taught was on 'sir gawain and the green knight' back in 1995. i remember feeling at ease and loving what i did. i still feel relaxed in front of the students and i still love it. i guess many things have evolved in the meantime; some may have devolved, too. but here i am, ready to go on, hopefully with more excitement and with new insights. at times i had a lot of zeal, or love; sometimes i was filled with anger; sometimes utterly exhausted. but i've never ever been indifferent.

the photograph was taken in march 1999

  3. We loved your lectures the most,I still remember your calmness,good will and great explanations so I don't doubt that you're one of the best teachers on the faculty as you were then in 1998..

    1. thank you sladjana :)

      i may have lost much of my calm since then, but that's the occupational hazard

  4. You have been amazing. You have always been enthusiastic, but I've never seen you angry :) Stay always so wonderful as you are(although I know you will:)). You have really influenced all of your students. You held brilliant lectures. Congratulations! Wish you all the luck.

    Warm greetings.

  5. The best a teacher can hear is that he or she made a difference. Thank you!
