Teaching pushes me to grow both intellectually and emotionally. I learn so much from the commitment, curiosity and humor that my students bring every day.”

Zoe’s Story

Teaching Discipline

Physics

Why Physics

“I love teaching physics because it involves so many different modes of thinking: playing with mathematical relationships and equations, developing conceptual intuition, designing experiments, and more. I believe that my students will be successful if they can take away from my class not only skills, but a mindset of belonging, curiosity, growth and resilience.”
