Elevator Pitch

What would I tell someone that I just met if they wanted to know about me?  I’ve read about “elevator pitches” many times before.  I think I even have some written down.  But, I constantly find myself changing.  My interests vary constantly.  Some days I enjoy teaching.  Others, I find it draining.  What I want is an overarching goal to work towards.  Last night I was thinking about one as it turns out.

I want to help prepare humanity to go to Mars.  In my current position, I want to teach problem solving through science education.  I envision building classrooms that are led by the students.  Students will learn leadership skills by taking turns leading the class during our explorations of the material.  I want to help students develop the ability to, as Bill Nye says, Change the world!
