My goals as a teacher are to instill enthusiasm for learning, to be a role model for lifelong learning and to provide moral support for learners.

I aspire to be the "guide on the side", promoting active student engagement in tasks that yield a sense of discovery. I rejoice when a learner asks a question that I cannot answer, for it means that the learner has become curious about something and has formulated a detailed question with which to interrogate "the knowledge cloud."
