Teaching: Curriculum Vitae

Richard J. "Rich" Wersinger

Rich's teaching philosophy is embodied in something Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers) once said:

As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is,
that each of us has something that no one else has—
or ever will have—
something inside that is unique to all time.
It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression.
—Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers)
