What a joy a person may experience when he or she sees an individual who has not been seen in a long time. Such was the case for me when I saw Mr. Bill Standiford at Imperial Valley College.
As I greeted Mr. Standiford, I noticed something about that instructor. He stopped to take the time to talk with me. He greeted me in a very courteous, heartwarming, friendly and kindhearted manner.
One day while I was talking with a friend concerning our classes, he shared that he has Mr. Standiford as an instructor. He then commented, "He is an excellent instructor. He makes the English material simple and easy to understand. He is a person who keeps the students attentive to his lectures. He has an excellent gift of teaching and may God bless him."
While I was receiving some help on an assignment, an IVC employee commented about Mr. Standiford. She said, "He cares about his students. He works on their behalf. He has a great sense of humor."
