What are your thoughts on teaching?
I don’t think of teaching in purely contractual terms. Students are three-dimensional people, and we are there to help them become the best they can be. That means thinking about their needs and interests and anxieties and aspirations. It means adapting instruction to the individual when possible. Good teaching is a magical thing, but it takes attention and concern.
