In my teaching across both BA- and MA-levels, I experienced the personal rewards of teaching and are inspired by its social significance. It is extremely rewarding to be involved in a students' quest to a solution to a problem, and to see it "click" either in real-time or in assignments and theses. As a first-generation student myself, I find it key to provide students with the confidence and skills to navigate through the university (mentorship), succeed on the job market (marketable skills), and thrive in their profession (concrete, problem solving competencies).
