What makes you excited about your subject, and why do you like teaching it?
“We can kind of use words and storytelling to not only create. We can use it to create the world that we kind of want to see but also kind of venture into someone else’s world that we don’t necessarily get to experience firsthand.”
What is one thing that students should know about you?
“I’m a fraternal twin. He’s [Donald is] a boy twin, so that we’re not like the fun, identical kind of twins, where we switch places and everything, but I think that’s kind of a fun thing.”
