A good educator strives to nurture the inner learning desire of students, encourage them to develop problem solving skills, show them how to see different perspectives of a problem and seek the most proper perspective to solve the problem. This is truly the best way to teach and to learn. During this process, a teacher should act as a guide rather than an oracle. To me, teaching is the most rewarding profession because you can pass your love and passion for science and knowledge to generations of young people.
