"I feel that my primary role as a design instructor is to develop a creative mind and always take an active role in teaching students. I think the fundamental idea in teaching is motivating students in learning and explore their imagination. I help students solve design problems to make their concepts to a clear visual format. I contribute to the culture of learning by helping and allowing them to make mistakes. I let the students think for themselves.

The responsibility of the teacher to understand and teach to all levels of a classroom so that all students will have a positive learning experience. Give clear and reasonable benchmarks to the class to build confidence. I always let the student know that I am on their side and want to see them become active members of the creative community. This idea has inspired student success.
