# Teaching

### Software Setup

Most of my courses involve installing the same set of software. See software and HW for instructions on which programs to install, and some hints/tips on commands to use on the unix/linux shell, and shortcuts to use in emacs. For some references and practice questions about C programming, see http://cs.indstate.edu/~jkinne/Cpractice/.

### Importance of Teaching

Among the greatest passions of my life are teaching and learning. I greatly enjoy both. More importantly, teaching and learning are at the foundation of modern society. Could there be doctors or astronauts without teachers? Would we have computers, the Internet, modern medicine, industry, etc. without teaching and learning? Indeed, just about any profession - whether it be a so-called "high tech" profession, a trade, or an art - relies on teaching and learning.

It is only logical that
*excellent* teachers are necessary to produce *excellence* in our
workforce. I am committed to being an excellent teacher of computer
science and mathematics. I primarily work to achieve this with
the teaching I perform in the classroom. I also am interested in outreach
opportunities to inspire a wider audience with the fascinating lessons
of computer science and mathematics.
