Evan's thoughts on education

Evan: "What's the hardest part of teaching?"

Eric: "It depends. Often it's the grading. But the teaching itself takes a lot of energy. It's kind of like putting on a show."

Evan: "Right. And sometimes you have to repeat the show, because your students weren't paying attention. They were obsessively texting their girlfriends."


Evan: "Daddy, do you think this is going to be the greatest battleship ever?"

Eric: "Evan, I'm just trying to finish grading one paper, and I need to be left alone."

Evan: "Well I'm just trying to build a battleship that will forever change you guys' lives."
