Teaching philosophy: Teach
as if you are not teaching - Mary Frances Clarke, BVM.
Clarke’s impact on Samira:
Clarke University has impacted me in many ways, at the forefront of which
is the high spiritual impact that Clarke infuses in the mind and soul of faculty
and students. The BVM core value of Freedom, Education, Charity and Justice can
be very influential on a person’s life, especially when it comes to raising a
family around the atmosphere of faith and kindness.
Samira’s impact on students:
I think caring is something I make sure to provide for my students. In
technology, students most of the time require one to one guidance and I try my
best to encourage students to meet at their convenient time to discuss and
resolve their technology-related difficulties.
