My most important job as a professor at Colby is to convince students they are capable of doing things they never believed they could do. While providing a framework for learning and structuring the required knowledge are essential for this journey, the key component is my belief in my students and their ability to achieve incredible things. I’m successful when my students have reached a point where they can be creative and have the tools to start really exploring what they can do. That is when true learning begins.
