Favorite Thing About Teaching

Learning—I love to learn. I don’t think learning should ever stop, and if we become closed off to learning new things, that is just sad! I think teaching is a great profession because in teaching, we learn! I am always learning new research or better ways to do something. I often even learn from my students! I think I learn something new every day, and teaching keeps my mind always asking questions and seeking information.
