for future projects.

Thank you for the wonderful
class you teach, ENGR110 Perspectives in Assistive Technology, at Stanford. And
thank you, especially, for the opportunity and the privilege of attending your
You teach a beautiful class to
wonderfully amazing students, while engaging and empowering people with
disabilities; and involving an array of talented, dedicated and accomplished
guest speakers who, in addition to providing their perspectives in class, would
be valuable mentors to the students for the present and in the
I appreciate your class because
your class gave me answers to a question I've been seeking an answer to, for
many years. The question, fundamentally, is this, what is our society doing to
enable the weakest members of our society, such as people with disabilities and
Your class, thankfully,
addresses this difficult and challenging issue regarding people with
disabilities, including the elderly, within our society, by applying the
knowledge and technology available to us in this incredible technology sphere
that is Silicon Valley. Your class provides highly motivated and capable
students with the opportunity to build solutions to real-world problems and
needs of people with disabilities and the elderly. It is a quixotic task that
provides returns and possibilities for the students, beyond their usual
academic exercises. It enables them, to bring to bear their physical,
intellectual and emotional faculties, and propels them forward towards dealing
with the real work world, that lay beyond the confines of their world-renowned
Regarding the content of the
class itself, first, from my perspective, you've delivered on the promises you
made on the first day of class. You've provided the students with a wonderful
opportunity to gain confidence in their ability to solve interesting and
challenging real-world problems that affect real people in need. The class, I
believe, affect a great many facets of the students's ever growing minds,
bodies, and spirits, by using their learned knowledge and skills at university
to truly affect a person, and people in need. And, I am convinced, this
opportunity, which makes your class special, makes them feel good about
Second, you've brought people
with disabilities into the classroom and empowered them. Now, when I encounter
a person with disability, I see the person first. I believe this effect is
unanimous among all attendees of your class.
Third, as a member of the
community attending your class, I became aware of the the knowledge and
resources that exist to help the elder and less able members of our society. I
felt exhilarated and overwhelmed by the volume and depth of the information and
resources your class provided. I was especially appreciative of the
presentations by Peter Axelson, Teri Adams, Jules Sherman, and Sha Yao.
Although, I would be quick to add that, every presentation was truly valuable
Fourth, I can truly say that
it's been an incredibly enjoyable class. I hope the students realize, sooner or
later, that they've a wonderful mentor in you and in all the other potential
mentors who've taken the time to present their perspectives in assistive
technology, in your class.
Finally, it's a very giving and
sharing class. I certainly learned from the knowledge and enthusiasm of the
students. And I learned from the presenters, both the able and those with
disabilities. And I certainly recognize and appreciate all the effort and
detailed work that went into preparing and teaching and running the smooth
operation of your class.
Thank you once again. And I wish
you continued success. I end with a smile on my face and a heart lighter now,
than at the beginning of the quarter, knowing that your class exists and
persists. Thank you. ;^) !
P.S. Thank you, too, for the
warm welcome to Stanford and to your class. I felt right at home in your class.
And the online videos and your class website were invaluable resources during
the quarter and I'm certain will remain so for a very long time to come. Your
class website will continue to remind me of the beautiful class you teach. I
look forward to re-visiting and reviewing the events in class and the field
trips of this Winter 2015 quarter for some time to come, through your online
class notes and videos.
