"Several professors from my past have inspired me greatly. Malcolm Ware, Jack Ashley and James Dickey are among the teachers I had who shaped who I have become as a teacher. Neither they nor I were aware of the influence they had on me at the time. As the years have passed, I have come to appreciate their wisdom more and more."
