My teaching philosophy revolves around creating an environment where students discuss, understand, learn, and can relate various concepts in the context of the bigger picture. To prepare them for their future careers, I like to foster critical thinking, resourcefulness, and professional engagement to facilitate the acquisition of lifelong learning skills.
