"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."
-Gandhiji.

This quote by Gandhi reflects the way my life is lived and the personality developed by living this lifestyle.
I have been told by many people of great importance personally that I am conscientious, hardworking and always willing to do any task that is my responsibility. I can work under any environment stressful or peaceful and I am determined to work to the best of my potential all the time.

Due to many experiences I have endured, it has given me the opportunity to have gained the ability to cope with the pressure of any situation.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My approach to student education has shifted from an emphasis on my teaching, to a more central focus on student learning, and finally to a more holistic realization that the two are inseparable aspects of the same whole. I would define "teaching and learning" much as I would define "communication" as a holistic process in which there is a co-creation of meaning between student and teacher. In order to accomplish this "co-creation of meaning," I struggle constantly to balance five basic classroom dialectics: giving knowledge and facilitating understanding; theory and application, helping and challenging; maintaining rigor and encouraging creative experimentation; and respecting and supporting a wide diversity of students and student needs while maintaining balance and fairness.
