I LIKE TEACHING AT SOUTHWESTERN BECAUSE: I have the freedom to tailor the curriculum to best suit the students’ needs.

FAVORITE QUOTE: “Treat your friends like family and your family like friends.”

MY TEACHING PHILOSOPHY: I believe that it is my role as a teacher to facilitate the learning process by presenting content in a way that peaks student interest, and to clarify difficult concepts in a way that is accessible and relevant. In order to do this, I believe that I must foster an environment of mutual respect where students can feel at ease to share their thoughts and concerns.
