Teaching philosophy

Education is never complete and acquiring knowledge is a continuous process. Teaching should also evolve continuously to keep up with the ongoing learning process. A Mentor can learn from a student as much as a student can learn from a mentor. It is foolish to believe that you have reached the pinnacle of knowledge in any particular field, as it can only be pursued. “Pursuit of knowledge” is as important in life as is “pursuit of happiness”.
