Your philosophy of teaching:

My goal as a professor is to facilitate and cultivate intellectual development while motivating my students to become self reflective and lifelong learners. To achieve this goal, I consistently endeavor to create a positive, supportive, and engaging classroom environment for my students. I favor classroom dynamics that permit dialogue and foster a degree of student input. Therefore, I try as much as possible to have an interactive class. I like to use real-world examples to explain the professional concepts effectively while challenge students with the case discussions.

Why did you decide to teach?

I love to share with others what I have learned and enjoy helping others grow academically and professionally.
