I want students to develop systematic, step-by-step thinking processes for addressing complex problems.  Much like a piece of music or a dance, a chemistry or physics problem is often composed of many interrelated, small details.  The details can be learned separately, but then they must be integrated correctly, and that takes a set of learnable skills.

Students are inspired when they feel challenged but also supported.  I use lots of positive encouragement, and emphasize the role of determination in success.
