When embarking on a career in education, we wish to inspire our students and therefore seek to be inspired AS students. Few professors have the ability to provide us with this inspiration. When we do find such a professor, we are relieved, thankful and become sponges that devour every drop of knowledge fed to us by that professor. It has been our great honour in finding this in Karen Reynolds. Her experience, expertise, and professional disposition, are just a few of the reasons why we hold her in such high regard. Our educational experience at Lakehead University has been enhanced because of her instruction. It is these reasons that we find it shocking and appalling that Professor Reynolds was not offered tenure and as a result, will not be teaching at Lakehead next year. Though we are leaving this facility to enter into the workforce, we feel it necessary to provide future students with the highest caliber of teaching available to them. That would undoubtedly include instruction from Professor Reynolds. There are some university profs here that clearly shouldn't be instructing pre-service teachers. Though they mean well, reading a text book would offer a better education. The value and experience brought to the classroom by Professor Reynolds is second to none and if this decision isn't reversed, the faculty of education will be losing one of their greatest assets.
