Every student is a seed for a unique sucess story, to germinate this story, it should be fed with knowledge, confidence, and inspiration. Therefore, I aspire to create student-centered learning environments in which the student is in the driving seat of their own learning. I don't believe in traditional classroom; I believe in problem-based pedology.
