Chair & Professor
For me, teaching is a noble calling. It is not a secondary pursuit after giving my best in the industry. It is the platform from which I give my best. My role is not to pose difficult questions and provide simple answers. Rather, it is to inspire others to think critically, creatively, and collaboratively to unveil simplicity amidst complexity and complexity amidst simplicity. Dan Rather stated that "the dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called "truth." I aspire daily to be that teacher.
