One of the saddest things I’ve witnessed during my matriculation at my beloved school is seeing a professor trying to recreate the passion for educating he once had. I’m hesitant to say he should go on and retire because for all I know, this could be one of the few reasons he gets up in the morning. Yet, I hope he finds some way to reignite his love for educating young people or find another means to reach the youth.
