Six years ago, the author organized this symposium to impart words of wisdom to incoming and continuing professors. I shared with you my teaching philosophy as a rookie professor through a set of sayings that I had come across some of which I never thought would apply to my own professional career. Well, six years later and my core set of values has not changed much; however, a new set of phrases can be applied. Several opportunities for professional development and a brief tenure as middle management color my outlook in a kaleidoscope of hues some bright some deep all part of how I teach today.
