     MY EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
   


As an educator, it is my responsibility to create an environment which is conducive to learning for students and fosters student engagement. This environment must pave the way for them to feel empowered, motivated, and self-confident.  It is also my duty to ensure that students succeed and make efforts to retain those who may feel discouraged at times because of life's challenges.  Therefore, in order to maximize Learning Outcomes, students need to have a meaningful learning experience. 

I believe that every student has the potential to make a difference in society, and it is the job of the instructor to provide them with guidance so they can pursue intrinsic educational, personal, and professional goals.

        INTERESTS
     

I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family.  Occasionally, I coordinate social events such weddings, birthday parties, and showers.  I also enjoy doing activities that cause me to grow spiritually as I am involved in Ministry work. Last but not least, I have strong interests in the roles of Mediation & Facilitation when group conflicts arise.
