Ask a Nazareth College professor why he or she teaches, and the answers range widely: Lifelong love of the subject matter. Deep fondness for the students. An inspirational teacher of their own. A passion for education as a transformational experience.
But behind these reasons lie the joy they all feel: joy in discovery, joy in sharing their knowledge, joy in creating new scholars and professionals. Nazareth professors may teach for many reasons, but they also all teach for the same reason. They teach because they love it.
