Being an educator is a joy and a privilege.

Teaching students to communicate science goes far deeper than choosing words and arranging sentences. In helping create the cognitive and affective conditions in which students learn to articulate their ideas and give voice to their passions, I learn as much if not more than they do. Effective, persuasive communicators are critical to the advancement of scientific research and to public understanding of science, and I am fortunate to be able to play a role in training them.
