Why do you enjoy teaching? " I enjoy teaching because I enjoy learning. Each semester I learn something new through the eyes of my students. I believe that in our increasingly complex world today, we, the teacher and the student, must accept the challenge to be life-long learners so that we are not only consumers but also caretakers of our fragile planet."
