Recipient YouTube Video: Why I Teach
Statement:  For me, teaching is all about connections: the connections between teacher and student, student and material, and the material and its relation to the real world. Learning without context may expand the mind, but learning in context turns knowledge into power – the power to use the knowledge to benefit society. My favorite moments are when a student says “so what you really mean is…” or “so that’s how ____ works!”
