Teaching at NMH: Teaching for me is an extension of learning. Students in my classes regularly ask me difficult questions to which I don’t already know the answer. Thus, I learn more as I help them find the answers for themselves. I also beleive that students at NMH are great at teaching each other about their own interests, and I make sure that there is room in my classes for students to be able to do just that. I strongly believe that to truly learn a concept, you need to teach it to another person. This applies outside of the classroom as well.
