“I value teaching as an opportunity to expose students to new knowledge and new ways of thinking, and as a challenge to encourage students to think critically about their own and others' thinking. I believe that findings from psychology and neuroscience can inform the process of education and serve to emphasize the incredible responsibility teachers have in fostering development of their students. Making connections among neuroscience, psychology, and education is perhaps the most fascinating part of being in this field, and I try to convey my enthusiasm for this interdisciplinary approach to science, learning, and discovery to my students.”
