我原以为自己会成为一名战斗机飞行员,直到遇见了我的高中数学老师

作者:Anant Agarwal, edX CEO, 麻省理工学院教授 我能走到今天在很大程度上是因为他的缘故。他曾经称我为“老鹰的儿子“。这一称谓出自这位以脾气暴躁著称的高中老师的口,既不是出于对我的钟爱,也不是溢美之词,而是因为他刚巧逮着了我在教室里吹口哨。 J.L.萨尔达尼亚是St. Aloysius高中的一名数学老师,St. Aloysius是我在印度卡纳塔克州邦班加罗尔市上的公立学校。 他教高中数学,主要教几何。他的工作绝非易事,因为作为学生,我们像大多数青少年一样,不懂礼貌且不守规矩。我们还给老师们起一些不好听的外号。
