As a scholar, I see teaching as a way to share the thrill of finding answers to research questions. When I see a light bulb going off in a student's mind- be it in the classroom when I try to explain a concept like how having zero pollution is not economically efficient because cleaning up the last few units of pollution can be very expensive, or when a student finally figures out how to set up research data after struggling for weeks- it is one of the most rewarding things I encounter.
