My professional biography:

    I earned my BA (2010) and MA (2012) in English from the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Poland.  I’ve recently finished my PhD studies with a major in Linguistics and additional coursework in Literary Studies. Currently I am awaiting the PhD defense.

My teaching philosophy:

    Teaching has always been my passion. The most rewarding moments for me, as a teacher, is when the learning process of my students is not only productive, but first and foremost, an enjoyable endeavor filled with meaningful experiences.  As a teacher and a scholar I want to instill in my students the ideal that the fundamental goal of the learning process constitutes their evolving into well-rounded human beings and pillars of the thriving and successful community.

    Being devoted to my profession, I am a firm believer in my students' capacity of greatness. My teaching philosophy is embodied in inspiring learners to discover their learning potential by instilling in them a sense of wonderment, empowerment as well as boundless enthusiasm towards studying, which in turn facilitates their continual emotional, intellectual, and social maturation. As a teacher, I regard my role as that of a facilitator, who by incorporating a wide spectrum of teaching methods, provides learners with tools and guided inquiry. Consequently, it empowers students to identify potential in their ideas, thus supporting them in becoming self-conscious learners, capable problem-solvers, and critical thinkers.
