"Aristotle wrote that educating the mind, without educating the heart, is no education at all. There is no greater honor than to work with students, teaching them how to think rather than what to think, encouraging them when they fail, congratulating them when they succeed, and recognizing that the principles they will live by define us and the soul of society. Teaching students how to apply statistical methods and financial principles in an ethical manner, no matter what career path they choose, is the most rewarding career one could hope to discover in life."
