Educational Philosophy
To create an environment where students not only feel comfortable but also confident enough to
express themselves creatively, as well as academically. I strive to inspire my students in the
classroom by encouraging them to work both independently and together to achieve their goals,
and also create an environment that fosters both constructive and open communication.
