Brief Statement of Teaching Philosophy

As a teacher, my primary goal is be an eternal learner. I believe in order to be a good teacher one must never stop learning themselves. I encourage my students to embrace eternal learning. Another personal goal is to teach students effective communication skills and offer them a classroom wherein they can utilize these skills to express their views. Lastly, I strive to be enthusiastic and inspirational to students. I do this by making every effort to show my students that I believe in them and support their academic goals.
