How does SIUE support your professional growth or activity as a Teacher-Scholar?

In the environment of SIUE academic freedom, seed funding and encouragement of research and teaching contribute to my professional growth as a Teacher-Scholar.

I believe that a good university teacher should be a good researcher first because a wide spectrum of knowledge can induce student learning and creativity. This is why the SIUE Teacher-Scholar makes me professionally grow.

What is a unique aspect of your professional life that enhances your service to the academic or greater community?

Non-stop to learn new knowledge, and never stop exploring new findings.

Please share how one mentor or event shaped your career decision to become a university professor. 

Educating people is one of my happiest things to do.  Discovering new findings is one of my favorite things to do.
