Why I love teaching at Taylor:

Working with the members of the Mathematics Department faculty has been a real joy.  They support and encourage each other to excellence both professionally and personally.  I also love teaching at Taylor because the students are awesome.

Advice to incoming students:

Avoid over-commitment of your time.  You will not be able to do everything you might like to do your freshman year, and need to make choices among alternate activities.
