What do you enjoy most about teaching?

My favorite part of teaching is helping students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to solve the environmental problems that are important to them. There are a lot of environmental issues that are impacting our natural resources and a variety of ways to help protect/enhance them. Because of this, it is always interesting to hear what environmental issues they are interested in and work to identify sustainable solutions.
