Teaching Philosophy

"Teaching is a process of learning from your students, colleagues, parents, and the community. I feel everyone in the classroom contributes as a student, teacher, and thinker. I try to learn from students as much as they learn from me. This is a lifelong process where you learn new strategies, new ideas, and new philosophies. Over time, my educational philosophy may change as I grow and learn new things."

Teaching Interests

I am interested in teaching applied geography; going beyond the classroom theory into real world problem solving and applications giving students strong skills to compete in the post-graduation employment market.

Research Interests
