“Like my two cats, the typical Obie is indiscriminately curious. Teaching someone like that is a lot of fun, particularly when it also forces you to expand your own curiosity beyond your discipline’s boundaries. That, for a social scientist like me, is a welcome bonus of teaching here.” - Professor of Economics Viplav Saini

I have a course number! That means it’s official!
I know, I know, I am irrationally excited about having a course number. But I mean, come on, it means that people know that my course exists! And can sign up for it, in about a week! 
Then again, that also means that in a week I’ll be teaching my first class. It’s vaguely terrifying. But the excitement outweighs the terror.

When I decided to teach full time, I made a promise to myself that I would not give up my professional career as an actor, and there are a variety of reasons for that […] The only way to be a legitimate teacher of acting is to continue to perfect the craft yourself. Otherwise, what basis do you have for teaching anyone anything?
Actor and professor of theater Matthew Wright, on the balance of experience and pedagogy.
