What do you like most about teaching?
Getting to know each student and trying to understand each student’s individual thought process. Each student brings unique ideas and reason to a discussion.
What do you find most challenging about teaching?
Finding the balance between my roles as instructor and helper: I want each student to experience success, and students need to make errors
