Why I Teach at SPU

Elaine Weltz, Assistant Professor and Chair, Computer Science

“I enjoy teaching because I love to watch students experience that ‘Aha!’ moment of victory that comes from solving the puzzle that is computer programming. The most gratifying part of my SPU experience is watching — and helping — students grow and mature from beginning programmers into computing professionals.”
