I recently received an email from a former student. Part of the email read
Do you remember the website (linked) I made for my foster parents for our class last fall? I have some good news to share — they found their first customer, who found the website on their own! Isn’t it crazy that the website is doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing!! I cannot believe that my product is actually turning out to be useful.
To me, this is one of the biggest complements that can be paid as an instructor. To know that a project used for class is implemented, out in the wild and being used brings a definite level of satisfaction.
Receiving this email made my day.
