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!

Hobbies

Listening to and playing music, backpacking, and cooking with friends.
