"Good teaching can never be judged by watching the teacher. It's what the students do that counts. If a teacher creates a world where students make discoveries and crystallize ideas for themselves, then the teacher has succeeded. I hope the continuing joys of thought and discovery are among the enduring legacies for students in my classes."
