Teaching Philosophy
"My teaching curve has evolved into two primary philosophies. First, I help Siena students to see the importance of the subject material through the interconnection of theory and practical applications. It provides the framework necessary for critical thinking, formulating relevant questions and find possible solutions. Second, I always like to create a positive learning environment that meets the needs and problems of each student and proactively engage them to increase their confidence and independence in scientific undertakings. I always look forward new ways to improve my teaching style through research and feedback from students and focus on being a role model as a teacher and mentor."
