My mother taught English to 7th-grade students for many years. I think that my desire to become both an educator and a scientist stems from her passion about education - her goals were always to get her students to think, and to give them a set of tools they could use (as opposed to only a grade that would allow them to advance to the next course of study). I am now a cognitive psychologist - an assistant professor, and I’m proud to say that I’m part of a department, and a university, that recognizes the value of high-quality education and scholarship.
