“I think the biggest thing for me is that I was so fortunate to have unbelievably great teachers. I mean very eclectic teachers, but I’m an eclectic person too. I had just the best teachers in the entire world in middle school and high school. I think to that end, they taught me how to teach. They showed me how to make something that may be esoteric accessible to the average person. And because of that, I don't consider my role that of a TV meteorologist or a media personality. I’m a teacher who just happens to work on TV or just happens to do radio hits. And so at the end of the day, I’m a teacher, and to me, teachers are the most important people in the world. And if I can embody that, that’s my goal.”
