Teaching Philosophy

I enjoy teaching, and I especially take pleasure in creating lesson plans, facilitating group activities, and mentoring students. I believe that respect for students is the most important aspect of the learning process. I listen to students to understand their perspectives and try to be their partner in the journey of learning.
