I enjoy challenging my students and watching them grow intellectually. My students teach me as much as I teach them. There is so much more for all of us to learn! I am grateful for the excellent professors I had as a student, especially those in Mathematics and in Physics. It is an honor and a privilege to count them among my colleagues and friends.
In their evaluations, students say they appreciate my clear explanations in response to their questions, my willingness to help them outside of class and my patience. They also value my fair grading practices and the fact that I care about them.
