I find teaching psychology classes engaging and fun. Psychology is a wide-open field with many avenues to explore. I enjoy the introduction to psychological science classes as it allows me to introduce many topics to students unfamiliar with the field. I also teach many upper-level courses, which give students the extension of knowledge into more specific areas of the profession. Students are free to ask a variety of questions and to participate in discussions of relevant topics that may affect them.
