Inspiration!!! Neil deGrasse Tyson and Carl Sagan’s first meeting

I usually reserve this blog for health-related research, but I think it’s time to expand it a little into the world of teaching and education.  I am on a career path that will involve some teaching at the college level, and with hopefully some mentorship.  Even though I am still early in my career, I have already had the privilege of mentoring some students (I am an instructor/coordinator for undergraduate internships at Temple University).  This experience has already been extremely rewarding.  

This video of NGT describing his first experience with Carl Sagan reminded me of how important it is to be uber-supportive of those coming up in your field of study.  I hope to continue to grow as both a mentee and mentor.
