This semester, I'm lucky enough to be one of his students. I've gotten to experience what it's like to be taught by a man that seems to know everything, but thanks to this blog, I've gotten to know him beyond his knowledge of English grammar. Today, I want to share those things with you, because Dr. Miller is a man worth getting to know.
Madame Man-Bourdon teaches her classes with enthusiasm, energy, and humor. I'm currently in my second semester of French, which is part of the Modern Languages department, and I cannot think of a day in her class where I haven't laughed at least once. Loving, kind, and intelligent are only a few words that describe this MC professor.
For Dr. Meadors, engaging in "the great conversation" of philosophy is key to living a fulfilling life. "Students should study philosophy because the world is a many-splendored thing, a beautiful gift from God in its dizzying variety and scope. A careful study of philosophy renders the world more richly hued and more sharply focused," he explains.
You know when you meet someone and you know that they're going to change you're life? That's how I felt when I met Dr. Beth Stapleton, the chair of the Modern Language Department, and one of my favorite humans in the world.
"I promise I'm not making any of this up" is Steve Cook's catch phrase. This semester, I've had the honor of finally having Mr. Cook for a class, Drawing III, and I have already heard that sentence uttered dozens of times. That's because Mr. Cook, a professor in the Art Department, is full of wildly interesting and unbelievable stories that fascinate his students. An instructor in printmaking, drawing, aesthetics, and painting here at MC, Mr. Cook has led an adventurous life, impacting many.
