“Teach Less, Teach Deeply”

Teaching for me is fundamentally student-centric. Teaching and Learning is centered on the acceptance of the students.

Teaching Deeply enables the students and me to go through the entire learning process in a way that we together come out of the process as better and informed citizen of the society and world.
