My teaching objective is to establish a professional and stimulating learning atmosphere where students feel inspired to explore their original thoughts, develop strong work ethics, and acquire valuable interdisciplinary and empirical skills that advance their personal and professional growth. To reach this goal, I engage in a combination of formative and summative assessment methods that both motivate and assess student achievement and instructional effectiveness.
