Teaching is nurturing, not just of each student's mind but of the whole person, not just in the classroom but outside of it as well, whether on the beaches of Normandy, the streets of London or Berlin or in my own home, where my wife and I host book discussions, award dinners and receptions for my students. If you think of it as nurturance, teaching can take place anywhere. And it's a full-time job. For me, there could be no finer one.
