Why you do what you do: I can’t imagine not teaching. When you love something, you want to help others love it, too.

What you want to give your students: I want to help students discover a subject that maybe they’d given up on before. I want to help them find a part of themselves in literature and writing, to own it for themselves.

What you expect from your students: Work, and an open mind.
