"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery."
- Mark Van Doren

It is a privilege to witness that spark ignite in my students, to foster their curiosity as their minds expand and develop over time, and to interact with them as colleagues as they successfully move beyond their undergraduate years.  It has been a journey of discovery for me as well as my students and one that I continue to look forward to every day.
