Instructional Philosophy

My teaching philosophy is anchored in the belief that learning is most impactful when rooted in real-world contexts. By weaving practical applications into the curriculum, I aim to deepen understanding and inspire a curiosity that extends beyond the classroom.

Respect is paramount, creating an environment where every voice is valued, and diverse viewpoints enrich the learning journey. I strive to nurture critical thinking by posing thought-provoking open-ended questions, encouraging analysis, and fostering independent reasoning.

Through these pillars of experiential learning, respect, and critical thinking, I aspire to empower students with the skills and perspectives needed to thrive in an ever-evolving world of technology.
