Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: I think that if you're teaching about even sort of theoretical concepts, you need to understand them first in your own place because it allows students to... relate to them in another way. They can definitely memorize all these concepts and theories and whatever, but if they can't relate it to their own lives I think it quickly goes in one ear and out the other.
