Teaching philosophy

I believe learning is a continuous process and that teaching is a form of learning. By trying to teach more, we only learn more than what we teach. For this reason I consider my students as my teachers. I consider every opportunity I get at teaching, as my own learning experience. In a sense, I believe I’m teaching myself and I want my teacher (myself) to give the best to me.
