Why I Love Teaching
I just finished giving my first lecture of the semester here at LSU! I love the interaction with the students and having to prepare lectures (which makes one really learn or re-learn the topic).
I suppose that I always wanted to be a Professor. It was my second career choice after being an astronaut. I remember in graduate school how rewarding it was to give presentations that students understood and appreciated. I guess I also remembered the awful professors and teaching assistants that I sometimes endured. This experience made me dedicated to presenting quality products to my students.
It's important to keep perspective on what's important and to remember what bothered you.
