Why I Teach

I teach because learning is the most exciting part of being human. I love learning how the natural world works. I love asking questions and trying to find the answers. I love sharing science, and hearing students go “whoooooa!” when something surprises them. But I equally love hearing them go “whoooooa!” when something makes perfect sense. I feel strongly that a basic understanding of the physical world makes us better equipped to make responsible choices as individuals and as members of society.
