My philosophy in education is that it is the main way to illuminate the minds and uphold the human affairs and to recommend the human soul and achieve civilizational achievements in various fields of life. The educational process presents its impact by focusing on the student as a recipient and researcher of information, by linking it to the main scientific sources and supervising the reference and guidance on them, so that it plays a positive and interactive role with the teacher and away from the method of indoctrination and negatives. This is without neglecting the importance of using modern methods of teaching, learning and communication with students in a participatory and interactive manner that undermines the boredom that students can feel using traditional means of teaching. It is also necessary to activate the academic guidance of students as it is an important factor in guiding them and taking their hand towards the right destination to ensure their help in solving their problems, developing their personality and upgrading the whole educational process. I also believe that the focus is on effective methods of teaching during the lecture, which include motivating students to participate actively, providing scientific knowledge in a clear and simplified manner and commensurate with the level of scientific, as well as focusing on the basic skills of students, which vary from one student to another and work to bridge the gap between Theoretical and practical aspects of teaching and focus on feedback and motivate students to review what has been explained and prepare in a practical and orderly manner for the topics to be explained.
