      Tara was one of only a handful of professors during my time at Middlebury who I can say changed the way I experience and think about the world.

      Professor Affolter's Education in America class made a huge impact on me and the way that I view privilege and power in our society. I'm now working in the social change field doing environmental organizing thanks in part to her inspiration.

      Tara is truly a gem--a wonderful teacher, a challenging professor, and a beautiful human being.

      If Tara is granted this position, there is no doubt in my mind that generations of Middlebury students to come will sing her praises. What is more important, however, is that those same students will accept her challenge to become "independent thinkers, committed to service, with the courage to follow their convictions and to accept responsibility for their actions."

      Yes I did just pull that from the Middlebury website. Please don't let the cliche get in the way of your making what should be the biggest no-brainer decision of this semester.

      Professor Affolter was one of the most inspirational teachers that I encountered during my four years at Middlebury. What I learned in my Introduction to Education course that I took my senior year expanded my understanding of the entire world around me and gave me a new lens through which to examine social, economic, and political issues. In short, Professor Affolter offers Middlebury students something this world so profoundly needs more of: passion.

      I would not be a competent teacher without the guidance of amazing teachers and mentors, especially Tara!
