"I approach teaching in a way that makes students interested in their learning. All students learn differently. In the classroom, I have hands-on learning, lecture, online learning and also group learning. This keeps students active and encourages them to learn. If students keep learning, their futures will be beneficial. This will help not only themselves, but also the futures of their families." - Melinda Hanson
