Faculty Spotlight

    "Teaching allows me to expose others to new ideas, art and ways of thinking, which brings me a lot of joy. I want my students to see how ideas fit together and to create new ideas, while evaluating and rethinking the old ones. Ultimately, they will learn the value of this kind of education when they succeed in transferring well or obtain meaningful careers instead of jobs at a much higher level than they could have originally dreamed."

    "I hope my students take away improved competence as communicators, a better understanding of human-ness (if that's a word) and, most of all, a love of learning."

    "Based on the technology that we have today, the field is more quickly evolving. I just really enjoy learning about biology, especially as it concerns insects and where insects fit into ecosystems. Biology has just been a life-long interest (and insects!)."

    "What I took away from those mentors was the importance of the teacher-student interaction," Jim Allen said. "Those are the people who stick out in my mind because of the support that they gave me. I probably remember a quarter of what the music teacher taught me, but the impact he had was far more reaching."

    "I never thought I had the right personality to be a teacher, but I found there to be a similarity between acting, which I enjoy, and teaching – as if your class is the scene partner," Richard Jarman explained. "Beyond that, there is no finer reward than to contribute a little to the success of others and share in their glory."
