Why I Teach

My goal is to pay forward the help and opportunities that my teachers and mentors gave me to a new generation of scientists. Even if my students do not choose science as their path (although I hope they consider it), it is important for me that all students leave my classroom with respect for the scientific process and the knowledge that science can help themselves and others.
