I am an effective and inspirational teacher who feels strongly that quality learning can only result from a partnership with quality teaching, because teaching and learning is an interactive process. My teaching philosophy led me to develop a teaching style that motivates students to want to learn. I constantly challenge my students to think for themselves and encourage them to develop an attitude of life-long learning.
