"There are two kinds of rewards I enjoy as a teacher. The primary benefit involves helping students learn. This is especially the case in a topic area that seems intimidating to many. The second reward is a purely selfish one. Teaching provides me with an incentive to learn. The only way that I can explain a topic is if I manage to obtain a deep understanding of it."
