My motivation for teaching:
I teach to share my enthusiasm for science with my students. I feel that I have done my job when students understand ideas and see the connection of those ideas to their own lives.

My favorite quote:
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
Theodore Roosevelt

A personal humorous school story:
Writes a female high school biology student who is doing some research for a paper on birth control:
My Dad found an article in an adult's magazine on birth control and I wanted to know if it would be alright to use it as a reference. The magazine itself is not exactly appropriate for a class discussion, as it does feature nudity and some rather profane articles. I can't remember right now whether it was a Hustler, Penthouse, or Playboy magazine - but I think you can understand my reservation. Would I get into trouble by using this article as a reference for my report? The article itself is surprisingly rather comprehensive and contains some info. I did not find elsewhere.
