My teaching philosophy is a work in progress and has continued evolving over the years as an undergraduate student, a graduate student and trainer. My teaching philosophy is an extension of my passion for communication.

Teaching is more than a lesson being thought and a lecture being given; I firmly believe that teaching is the process of communicating the rhetorical, the relational and the practical applications of every lesson. Teaching is a process of sharing information and assisting students on their respective journeys. Teaching isn’t’ about trying to “cram” ideas, definitions and theories into students’ minds; it is an opportunity to guide them towards higher understanding and meaningful connections.

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” – Henry Adams

I take teaching my students seriously and strive to not only teach content, but also to make it relatable and personal. I believe in creating course material that reflects students’ lives. During lectures I strive to relate every aspect to students, society and demonstrate the practical application of the lesson. I believe that an educator should never be stagnant. It is our duty and my passion to continue learning and sharing what I learn.
