I am always pumped up when teaching organic chemistry. The topic is one of my life's passions, and I do my best of pass this love onto my students. Yet, the teaching of this course must be mixed with understanding and compassion, because the topic is very challenging for most students. Thus, when students learn to love a topic as difficult as organic chemistry, I feel I have done my job well.
