Teaching is about building and maintaining relationships – relationships between students and their instructors, between students and course material, and between students and their peers. My role, as a teacher, is to facilitate the development of those bonds. It is what I try to do every time I walk into a classroom. Fostering those relationships is a challenge that still excites me after many years of teaching.
