For me, teaching is an intense collaboration between teacher and student in the pursuit of knowing.
Teaching is the humblest profession. Good teaching is not just competency but an attitude of energetic, open-minded exploration—a driving curiosity, an eagerness to be surprised, and a willingness to be proven wrong. It is risky. I find most success when I talk across the table—first among equals—rather than down from the lectern.
