Mount Tamalpais College’s faculty appreciation party for the 2022-2023 school year was a warm, collegial event that celebrated the dedication of MTC’s community of educators. The room was filled with guests meeting, reconnecting, laughing, and exchanging ideas. Student messages to their instructors were displayed, which described courses as “life-changing” and “humanizing,” while instructors were thanked for being patient, relatable, engaging, and knowledgeable. “You are a model of what education can do for the human soul,” wrote a student. “Thank you for your wisdom, passion, sternness, insight, and stories.” Another student shared that his class inspired him to want to become a math and science teacher himself.
