"I was fortunate to be born in an educational 'dynasty.' With parents and grandparents committed to education and pedagogical practices in subjects as wide ranging as economics, literature and oceanography, my inspiration for teaching has been my family. Teaching is a wonderful privilege and a vocation that is extraordinarily humbling. My students are, and have always been, a great source of inspiration and pride."

Dominique Elliott | Motion media design professor
