His philosophy of teaching is to provide all learners, irrespective of their social, cultural, linguistic and ethnic background, with the opportunity to acquire knowledge, skills, values and attitudes that would enable them to progress through school and contribute meaningfully to their society. This emanates from his experience as professional and interactions he had with the less endowed students in his career as a teacher.
