One thought on “Less than a week away: Please join me and sign up today for the smash bang spring semester with Dr. Ed Mazza… a soothing respite from Lenten penances, two nights a week!”
It’s one thing to be smart, another to be wise (two very different things); but it’s a very rare thing to be all that and also have the ability to transmit and instruct what you possess to another in a clear, concise, logical, understandable way that makes sense – from the master to the student.
Some teachers you can be in awe of their intellect … but you at the end of the day you remain standing on the outside.
Professor Ed Mazza obviously possesses a wide body of knowledge and experience … and has the teacher’s heart to pass it on to the novice.
That’s my limited experience with him. As a former teacher in a past life, I appreciate the ability to pass it on.
