Teaching/Educational Philosophy: I believe that learning is an active practice rather than a passive undertaking. The more we engage ourselves with a topic and explore it in a variety of ways, the better we understand. Curiosity is one of the best attributes a learner can have.

 

Personal Notes: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” – Howard Thurmon
