I have two primary motivations for teaching. First is the satisfaction that comes from knowing that I have helped someone acquire new knowledge or useful skills, particularly those related to critical thinking and problem solving. Students can then apply these skills to address the ever-changing problems our field must address now and in the future. Second is the significant need for trained informaticians across all aspects of healthcare. I want consummate informatics professionals working in the institutions where my loved ones receive their care. Together, these motivate me to perform my very best as a teacher.
