Why Honors? I was drawn to teach at the BYU Honors Program because of my own experience as an undergrad at Utah State. It was there, in those classes, that I first took charge of my own education, finding the courage to explore and develop my own ideas. It feels right to come full circle in trying to give other students here at BYU those energizing, world-expanding experiences. I like the student’s optimism and energy and the friendliness of the staff and directors. During my time teaching for the Honors Program I have gained a deeper curiosity about other disciplines and worldview—it has energized and expanded my own scholarly work.
