"I don't think there's anything more stimulating than working with students. Dealing with intellectually lively kids, at an age where the mind is open and eager to learn, brings with it a lot of satisfaction but also a big load of responsibility. I always try to keep in mind a famous quote by Sydney J. Harris: "The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows". In fact, I like to see the teacher not as someone who metaphorically reduces students to "mirrors" that uncritically reflect other people's ideas (or even worse, their own ones), but rather as someone who helps them to become "windows", something that, supported by curiosity, opens up and allows you to look far away."
