Being a Supervisor

Over my career as a scientist I had the opportunity to mentor a number of students; both as a graduate student and then as a postdoc.  Most summers I had one summer student who I dedicated time and effort to;  both in teaching my research to, as well as teaching the skills necessary to assist me.  Over the years I hope that I have honed my skills; and they have certainly been tested.  Although I am convinced one of my students will literally be the next Leonardo De Vinci some of them were more challenging (both due to personality and ability).
