What about teaching excites you?
When my students are engaged in deep conversations about science, I am energized. Not only do those conversations lead to a deeper understanding about our topic of study, but also about each other and our diversity of perspectives.

How do you help students make the industry or real-world connection to what they’re learning?
Bringing the “real-world” into those conversations helps all of us come together to try to understand each other’s vantagepoint and to make connections between what we are studying and the practical applications of that knowledge.
