My teaching philosophy revolves around the principles of providing student-focused education, fostering critical thinking skills, and developing lifelong learners. By creating a positive, supportive environment in the classroom, I enable the students to be successful in the classroom and beyond. My ultimate goal is for the students-turned-clinicians to understand that the classroom is not the means to a terminal degree but rather a launch pad for endless growth and development.
