Teaching/Educational Philosophy: 


“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.” 

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. 
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” 
Bruce Lee

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."
