Why I Teach
I emphasize practical methods in my teaching. By bringing together theory and practice, students can take ownership of their education. I explore topics that stimulate while providing knowledge and research skills that students can use for their own solutions.
As a teacher, I revel in discovering new interests while learning from my students. Experiencing their passion for exploring new ideas and innovative approaches to addressing our most pressing problems is something I truly value.
