Just think about it, no matter how challenging a class could be, the sentiments you feel towards the individual teaching the course influence how much you enjoy the course: "It's a hard class, but Mr./Ms./Prof. So-and-so was funny and he/she made things make sense." To those who commit themselves to helping us discover who we are and harnessing the best us we could be, thank you.
In our way, we can engage with our own community. We could start with how we treat our neighbors. Make eye-contact, smile, say hello. They might not reciprocate the gesture at first, but it's a start. People change people. And I promise, you've made them feel a little bit more special already.
