Professor Cathrine “Cate” Reck has taught C341 Organic Chemistry in the College for twenty years, helping students navigate a course that carries a legendary reputation as one of the most difficult courses offered in any college curriculum. When Covid-19 brought new challenges to teaching and learning in C341, Reck responded by sharing the hard-won wisdom of her father with students.
Dear C341 class,
We all know that teaching and learning online this semester has been challenging. Months spent avoiding the coronavirus has been tiring and frankly depressing. Resilience is fading. We all feel it.
