By teaching I will have the opportunity to not only to teach basic knowledge, but to influence many different areas as well. One of the reasons that I love Whitworth is that it strives to provide an education of the mind and heart—students here are taught that it is about more than just learning the stuff that will be on the test so that they might earn an ‘A’ in the course.
