    Teaching Philosophy:
    CREDO
    Education is a process of integrating knowledge and experience with culture and understanding. The art of teaching, especially when teaching a language, requires the docent to reach deep inside the subject and extract not only the material to be learned, but also the essence and value of the culture it represents. Language is learned best when the student encounters the people who speak the language and their society. This approach to learning is one that I deeply embrace and encourage. It has always been my pleasure to share all my knowledge and experience with my students as a world traveler and diversified teacher.
