« Typically, a reference from a family member might be biased--this is not. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree--I was a Professor at Colorado State University for twenty years. I know the competencies required for a good teacher--love of subject, ability to convey knowledge, mentorship, rigor. Baxter has these qualities and would make an excellent teacher. He has the ability to synthesize knowledge and information on a level understood by the student. He is passionate and detail driven. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Baxter Smith for your program. »
