It is humbling and exhilarating to come to work every day to a place where people are working for a common goal with such a mix of competence and humanity.

My eighth-grade self would never have believed I would love homework so much.
Commonwealth taught me how to interact with different people, and I think I've learned a lot of skills regarding meeting new people. It's having that safe space, where I can make myself uncomfortable, but I also have my advisor and I have friends who support me.
Commonwealth attracts a great mix of students that I've made a lot of strong connections with. In that area, it was much easier for me than I expected to feel comfortable going up and talking to new people, since everyone is getting to know each other the same way you are.
My students teach me so much that each subsequent year the course is informed by their insights.
