Dear Mr. Robert Roth,

Thanks for being such a passionate educator that cared about including diversity in the classroom and challenged us constantly to consider global issues from all standpoints.  You inspired me to pursue my undergrad in Political Science, allowing me to gain knowledge and ever expanding perspective in this culturally diverse and beautiful world.
