Philosophy

I consider the opportunity to teach a privilege and an honor. I do not think my students do not yet know what I know. At some level, they all have instincts and passion—exactly what I started with. It is my job to locate and engage those instincts, and ignite that passion. And, once they have learned a lesson I teach, another brick on their path is laid. As their road winds and lengthens, I expect my lessons to be far back, yet visible as landmarks; the foundation of a life of doing and knowing things I may never do or learn myself. I view this as a gift of life and crucial to the process of intellectual evolution.
