There are similarities and differences, positive and negative, amongst the students from each school for which I have taught.
The positive attributes I appreciate about SUNY Platts students are
1. They are polite
2. They are courteous
3. They are appreciative
4. They are active learners
5. They question what is being taught
Hands down SUNY Plattsburgh students are the most polite (and not in a "Minnesota Nice" way either) bunch I've come across. Doors are held, hellos are returned, and the thing that I am still getting used to is that they thank you for everything.
It amazes me that every student says thank you when they hand in a quiz. The crazy thing is, some of them actually mean it.
Today two students thanked me for asking a particular question on the quiz, because it made them think.
Happy Friday to me. I will be smiling as I grade today. Thank you students.
