My educational philosophy is that education is transformational. It is my life mission to change lives through empowering students, teachers and the surrounding community. It is a personal thrill to see students overcome challenges and discover what is possible within themselves.

I truly believe that all students can learn. Math is not the easiest subject for most students. However, just the same for other subjects, an effective delivery of instruction is needed to meet the different types of learners: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. I use a variety of ways to teach math by making the subject fun and meaningful to students. Students are able to learn and retain the materials better if what they learn can be readily applied to real life situations. I also believe that the idea of “small, but often” assessments is a vital part of the teaching and learning process. Formal or informal evaluation should be consistent and frequent. This allows both teacher and students to assess and to reflect upon the mastery of the materials.

I teach because I love knowledge. New knowledge is best but all knowledge is enduring. I want my love of knowledge to be contagious. I love the structure of learning at Pacific View. We put the emphasis on you. How do you learn best? At what hours? What are your strengths? Then we let you grow by failing and trying. Eventually, the journey is what gives us knowledge.
