Academic Philosophy

The overall mission of a teacher is to promote positive learning, spark learner enthusiasm for learning and provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning. Effective teachers instruct with clarity and focus. I believe that teachers, who share their “passion” for teaching, and teach with enthusiasm and empathy, are more likely to both connect with learners and increase learner performance and mastery.
