Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.”    Chinese proverb

As a symbol of wisdom and higher learning, a professor may represent preeminence in some field of endeavor.  Discovering a teacher who wakes you up instead of putting you to sleep is one of the most rewarding college experiences you can have. A great professor can get you excited about a whole new subject, influence which major you choose, and maybe even change your life. It is my personal goal to be a great professor.
