  1. Dr. Claussen & Dr. Vierstraete —
    Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for the students at SMSU. I periodically read your blog posts & tweets and are often encouraged by the work you both continue to do, the encouragements you share, and priorities of the students you teach. Thank you for all your work. Now, I have my own classroom to give my best every day. Likewise, I am continuing learning throughout the summer. True teaching is a passion. Thank you.
