 "Even though I am certain that I am a better teacher than I was 20 years ago, I always feel that I have room for improvement.  I would rather my students see me as someone who doesn't know it all, but loves to work alongside them to find the answers, rather than as someone who knows everything and criticizes anyone else who can't see it the same way."
