"A little while and I will be gone from among you, whither I cannot tell.   From

nowhere we come, into nowhere we go. What is life? It is a flash of firefly in

the night. It is a breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow that

runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."   –Chief Crowfoot

Overview of my teaching

My job is to create , improve, and distribute knowledge for the betterment of society.  Both teaching and research are important components of this.  In the words of  Will and Ariel Durant:

"Civilization is not inherited; it has to be learned and earned by each generation anew; if the transmission should be interrupted for one century, civilization would die, and we should be savages again…

Consider education not as the painful accumulation of facts and dates and reigns, nor merely the necessary preparation of the individual to earn his keep in the world, but as the transmission of our mental, moral, technical and aesthetic heritage as fully as possible to as many as possible, for the enlargement of man’s understanding, control, embellishment, and enjoyment of life..."
