|Nitish Dhingra||Hi Ms. Bonney, Yes I would love to share my thoughts about Mr. Young! I think the crux of what I tried to get across in my message was that while, of course, Mr. Young's knowledge and teaching abilities with respect to biology are almost unparalleled, what made him such a valuable educator and mentor for me was his willingness to forge meaningful relationship with his students in order to impact them in ways beyond biology. Mr. Young always took interest in asking me about my extra-curricular pursuits and passions, and was consistently supportive of everything I did outside the classroom. The fruits of that relationship he built were plentiful - throughout my two years with him, not only did he provide me with the tools to grow as a student in an academic sense, but also helped me develop as a person and introduced me to a new perspective on how I can change my regular lifestyle to improve myself (more specifically in training my mind through meditation). His light mood, and unwavering sense of humour made the classroom environment even more enjoyable, and I could not be more thankful for all of his support and encouragement over the past couple of years. I wish him all the best, and congratulate him on his tremendous career! Regards, Nitish|
