The Monday morning Mech 1 class is complete.

The Tuesday evening Mech 1 class is complete.


Semester grades for both classes were submitted Friday, May 24th at 10:05 a.m.
Please read this semester's final "Comment" below.


It truly was an interesting semester (my 66th, I think).  I saw a large drop rate and a small drop rate in different sections of the same class in the same time frame.  There seemed to be more work in setting up the equipment and storing it away.  My students were good at seeing mistakes that prior classes and I had missed.  Overall, I think most of us had a good time and learned something in the process.  I know I did.  I didn't miss teaching the Mech 10 class as much as I had imagined, although I did miss it somewhat.  

It turns out that I still can get up early to teach a morning class.  As usual, the spring semester just blew by like a March breeze.  Mostly, though, I hope that at least a few of my students will go from my classes with at least a little interest and, possibly, a newfound appreciation for the science and art of electronics. 

I'm sure, unfortunately for me, that I will never again see most of my former students who graduate and will forever call themselves, "Sierra College alumni, 2019."  I wish them success, happiness, good health and fond memories of their alma mater.  May all of you have a great summer break and thank you for a good semester.
