Why I love teaching at Taylor:
Teaching at Taylor is one of the greatest blessings in my life. Taylor is where I have found my real friends and colleagues of my life. I feel so grateful and happy walking together with my friends at Taylor towards the same direction to the same goals of our lives.
My relationships with students at Taylor is more than just between a professor and a student in the classroom. We are more like a family. Students and I share joys and issues and pray together. For me, it is a great pleasure and blessing to be able to enjoy interactions with students and to see them grow.
Advice to incoming students:
Do not seek out great people or places, but make yourself a good person and a great place wherever you are.
