Sometimes it's easier to connect with students if they know a little about the teacher as a person. On this page I'll tell
my class a little about myself (e.g., my hobbies and interests, how I first became interested in my subject), as well as including
more practical information like how to get in touch with me, when I hold office hours, my e-mail address, and my phone number.
might also include lists of such things as my favorite books or movies, music I enjoy, and so on. And I'll be sure to include
a picture, just in case any students forget what I look like!
