Regarding the Sept. 14 Tar Heel of the Week article “ Professor turns ‘stand-up scholar’ ”: I just wanted to thank you for the great article about Dr. Elliot Engel.
I was a student in one of his first English literature classes when he started teaching at N.C. State. He was brand new, and I was a nervous, first-year older student. I lucked out. He was the best teacher I had in my entire college career.
It is so nice to know that through all these years, he has retained his joy and enthusiasm for teaching that I first experienced in that classroom so many years ago. Wow!
It was so pleasant to read a story about an interesting and joyful person.
