Why I Teach

Teaching allows me to act as a guide for students as they wonder about the world around them. I find myself curious about a whole range of topics and enjoy awakening that same curiosity in them. With clear and concise guidance, science becomes thought provoking for those who are new to the subject.

Teaching keeps me on a path of lifelong learning in an environment where we are constantly asking questions. It is incredibly rewarding when you see students choose to walk that path for themselves.
