My primary goal as an educator is to provide an environment where students can be critical thinkers. Showing them how to think not what to think, as it doesn’t seem long ago that I was a university student. My approach to education is founded on what I valued as a student by using the student's strong side of thinking, improving it for the best results in present and future. lastly in my opinion the excellent educator specially for architecture should have a passion, imagination, clarity, organization and respect.
