Dr. Yangdon, Lecturer

Philosophy of teaching and learning:

My philosophy of teaching and learning is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Additionally, I believe that a teacher should be a guide by the side and not a sage on stage.
