From the beginning, I try to help my students understand why it is important for them as a person to understand chemistry and why I am so enthusiastic about the topic. I try my best to remain energetic and optimistic throughout every lecture and every laboratory. All I ask of my students is to try their best. Students are sometimes challenged by the subject matter, but as a teacher, I am challenged by teaching.
