Why I Teach

I believe that students gain their knowledge in different ways. Therefore, I try to bring a variety of formats for learning into the classroom in order for everyone to benefit from the experiences. Education is indeed an opportunity for people to develop their cognitive, existential, emotional, intrapersonal and interpersonal intelligence.

I encourage my students to open themselves up in all these areas as they learn course content. Teaching is a privilege, and I am honored to have the chance to teach.
