"One more thing Bruce: I have spent my share of time in the classroom and I can say with confidence that you are one of the best teachers of all time, so keep it up and don't stop. You were born to it.
You skillfully meld the mundane with the fun and manage to keep the squad engaged and chucklin, while they learn things they may consider to be a bit dry."
