One of the things I’ve had to change is how I related to students.

I grew up playing football and wrestling. I went to a service academy and served in the Navy. Then, of course, I got pushed in graduate school.

I cannot treat my students the way that I got treated; they would break down rather than get motivated; in general they have trouble handling even a hint of anger.
