Why I Teach Reason No. 17

I just received this feedback from Troy Uyan’s presentation at Clark College earlier this week:

I just finished Troy’s presentation. He is an extraordinary individual. If I didn’t know any better, I would think he had at least 5 to 10 years experience. He is extremely accomplished in such a short time. His story about realizing that if a textbook had 13 chapters and only 8 were covered he would finish the other five chapters was very telling about his desire to excel.

Troy was a former student of mine who completed the Web Development program at Clark College, located in Vancouver, Washington.
