I teach topics which many consider to be very complicated. I believe that anyone can teach a complicated topic so that it is difficult to understand. My goal is to make complicated processes and topics logical, clear and interesting. I use a lot of examples, calling on the class to suggest details. On those days when I successfully make a complicated topic or process clear to my students, I feel that I can call myself an educator.
