Well I cannot really be proud papa, but I can be a proud teacher. I have heard from three of my students whose thesis I had advised so far. All three received a 5 (A) on their thesis defenses. Two of them received a 5 on the written work, one a 4. I really argued with the instructor who gave a 4, because the thesis was on uses of technology in the US classroom. She has no concept of technology and did not think much of it was relevant. The unfortunate part is she is young and molded into the traditional outdated, outmoded way of teaching. She did bend to give him a 5 for the defense, so he is happy, I am satisfied.
