“I love teaching at Mizzou because I get the chance to work with world-class colleagues, staff, and students to foster an environment where lives are made better every single day. At Mizzou, we have a community of teachers and learners dedicated to new methods of instruction, innovative research, and impactful community outreach. We hold the awesome privilege of shaping the citizens of tomorrow and we honor that privilege by building classrooms marked by rigorous and respectful debate, the relentless questioning of assumptions, and the quest for human understanding. We don’t just teach calculus, or English, or history. At MU, we teach other human beings how to ask the right questions and to seek answers that make society better for us all. That’s why I love teaching at Mizzou.”
