For me, teaching is an avocation, not just a vocation. I love to inspire, teach and learn from my students. For this reason, my teaching style is a guided but highly interactive, student-oriented method. In some classes a worksheet provides the structure; however, group discussion and a dynamic, student-oriented approach is maintained — allowing students to learn new knowledge rather than be fed new data which they will quickly forget. I hope students can discover new knowledge through personal initiative and test new theories through first-hand experience, exercise their intellectual wings and voice their individual points of view.
