Some teachers are good, fewer still are great, and only a handful are what I would call Master Teachers.  Steve Rosenoff is, without a doubt, a Master Teacher.  I remember the first time I listened to him teach.  He came in as a "guest teacher" in one of my Potter's School biology courses so I could evaluate him and see whether or not Apologia should hire him for the next academic year.  After what I thought was 15 minutes of him talking, I looked at the clock, and nearly an hour had passed.  I knew all the material he was covering, but Steve made it so fresh and alive that I was, quite simply, mesmerized.  The next time the class met, I told the students they had, probably for the first time in their lives, experienced what it was like to be taught by a Master - someone who elevates his profession to an art form. 

Over the years, Steve has taught me more about the art of education than anyone else, and I am a MUCH better teacher as a result.  More importantly, however, he has taught me a lot about how to live as a Christian.  I can't tell you the number of students I have met at conventions who have told me how deeply Steve has impacted their lives as an online teacher.  One constant theme runs throughout these testimonies I hear: Mr. Rosenoff really cares.  His students see and experience the love of Christ through him, even though most of them never even meet him.

Thank you Steve.  Thank you for caring for your students.  Thank you for ministering to your students.  Thank you for teaching your students.  But most of all, thank you for what you have taught me. 

Your student,

Dr. Jay L. Wile
