Perhaps the text from this screenshot is difficult to make out. However, that's not really the point. What's remarkable about this blog excerpt is that it was created last month by one of our students from last year, who is currently a senior. What's even more striking about it is that the person commenting on the post is one of our students from a previous year, who didn't share a classroom with the author, and is currently a college student, a freshman at Iowa State!
Hopefully this will serve as an example of what Mr. O'Connor expressed during the first week of school: we as your teachers want to become "useless" in the best possible sense. Long after you leave our class, we hope you will be "continuing the conversation."
