Teaching Statement

I believe teaching should be directed at achieving three goals. Sharing and receiving knowledge, creating an enabling environment for students to share ideas and possibly disagree with teachers fearlessly but objectively and provide a platform for instilling good morals and values geared towards generational transformation.
