My philosophy of teaching can better be described as a philosophy of learning. As a teacher I try to know each of my students personally. I always recognize which student was sharp in class and which students had a slightly harder time catching up. As a result I would design the student course accordingly. A course that would further push the sharper students as well as help the slightly slower students to catch up and learn. I believe that success (personal or professional) is generated from three critical building blocks: knowledge, critical thinking, and curiosity. These building blocks have an enduring, cyclical relationship. Knowledge helps us to understand the world around us as well as ourselves, critical thinking gives us the ability to incorporate knowledge and apply it endlessly, and curiosity, which is the result of realizing the limitations of current knowledge, drives us to acquire additional knowledge.
