Education: National University Philosophy of Education: I have always been passionate about foreign languages, and being able to speak other languages has had many positive outcomes in my life. As a teacher, I want to share my passion with students while helping them develop their communicative skills in the target language. I believe that it is very important to bring authenticity into the classroom in order for students to learn the target language and to make it fun. Therefore my role is to provide students with opportunities to engage meaningfully with the target language in the 3 modes of communication. I also want to make students aware that language is key to understanding others, and that by understanding other cultures it will broaden their perspectives, it will open their minds and it will empower them to succeed in their personal and professional life.

Philosophy of Education: Educations to be is like "opening the windows to the unknown." In my 30 years of teaching, I have had such good times and joy in helping my students open those windows and discover the new and exciting world of opportunities for themselves.
