A Note to My Students of the Past Seven Years

My dear students,

I have worked as an assistant lecturer at ASL for the past five years and have had miscellaneous teaching gigs here in the two years before. Now that I am leaving ASL and moving from research and teaching into academia management, I want to make sure to express my deep gratitude to you for all the wonderful experiences of the past seven years. Teaching you and learning from you, advising you and debating with you, seeing you and your intellectual skills develop over the years and contributing something to that development has been not only intellectually and personally enriching but also a rare combination of a true honor and a genuine joy. My interaction with you in all its forms will undoubtedly be what I will miss most about the career path I am leaving now, and I am deeply grateful that I have had this privilege throughout the past years.

Thank you.

Florian Bast
