I have been gradually migrating from Stata to R because there exist many useful packages that facilitate both teaching and (reproducible) research in an elegant way. For example, this website is created completely using Radix, an R package built by Yihui Xie and his coauthors. Recently, I have also started to use bookdown to organize and write notes and papers.
