Why I love to teach
Well I suppose it sounds cliché, but I really feel I’m getting paid to learn, not teach. Every interaction with a student or a colleague gives me new perspective – on a math problem, on some culture different from mine, on some life experience I haven’t had. Reflecting on these moments helps me make sense of my place in many different communities, and hopefully I can bring a few of those moments to those around me as well!
Listening to and playing music, backpacking, and cooking with friends.
