His teaching philosophy is based upon the understanding that learning is about the eternal pursuit of knowledge and our journey together in becoming lifelong learners. I learn from my students and in-turn they learn from me. It is the social construction of not just learning from one another but the learning and understanding of the truth and knowledge is within us.
