Statement:  I get nervous at the start of every semester. But my nervousness reminds me that good teaching is risky. Even the best laid plans can unravel in a class. Having things come undone pushes me to grow as an instructor. Knowing the material is one thing; effectively teaching it is its own skill, a skill that must grow and evolve to meet student needs. Luckily, I've had outstanding mentors throughout my career. If good teaching involves risk, the best teaching is collaborative.
