Marek J. Druzdzel: Teaching

At first I intended to put a personal statement of my teaching goals here, but I realized that I could not phrase what I believe in better than the following three quotes:

"I don't believe I can really do without teaching." --- Richard P. Feynman

"If we expect students to be winners and expect them to do well, they will rise to the occasion." --- Jaime Escalante

"We can talk all we want about awards and salary raises, but the real reward of teaching is teaching. The personal satisfaction you get when you do it effectively is just phenomenal." --- David W. Pratt
