The Emails

Good evening Dr. Davis,

I didn't appreciate what took place this afternoon. You slamming my essay on my classmates desk and walking away saying "Whatever" was unprofessional. I was listening to what you had to say. Luckily I can control myself and not act out of hand. That made me very upset. Thank you for your time.

Subject: RE:
Thank you for your note, Briana; I am sorry for my reaction; I did feel like you were not paying attention and I'm glad I was wrong. Maybe we can talk more about this, if you want to, but I think really it was a misunderstanding, and my own frustration with other things going on in the classroom, not you.

I will be more aware next time that you are paying attention, in your own quiet way. It was wrong of me to assume that you were not.

I do appreciate your writing to tell me about how you feel, and I hope that you will continue to talk and write to me so that we can understand and appreciate each other better.

Have a good evening. Dr. D
