For many years I have thought of myself as a writer first and a teacher second--maybe because I sort of fell into teaching. It was a default choice.
But what I have come to realize lately is that my richest experiences have come from the teaching part of my life. Because of the opportunities I've had to teach at BYU and Westminster, as well as in various workshop settings, I have been able to meet the most incredible people. People who are smart and brave and hungry, vulnerable and strong. My life would be all kinds of gray without their stories.
You know who you are. Thank you.
