A successful teacher leads students to ask difficult questions.

Teaching provides physicians with an ability to impact patients that they will never meet. A successful teacher connects with students in many ways. A successful teacher makes complex material accessible to students; inspires students to pursue knowledge and understand the importance of that knowledge; and leads students to ask difficult questions. A successful teacher is passionate about the most mundane topic and doesn't have all the answers. I am still striving to be a successful teacher.
