Teaching Philosophy My teaching objective is to establish an inviting and stimulating learning atmosphere where students feel inspired to explore their original thoughts, develop strong work ethics, and acquire valuable interdisciplinary skills to advance their academic 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.
