About Linda Vanasupa

My teaching philosophy has changed over the years to more of a learning philosophy.
One of the things that I know about the students is that they are almost always outside their "comfort zone" in the classroom...learning new things and taking on new challenges.
My hope these days is to be true to the education process by joining with them, outside of my comfort zone as well. If we don't learn new things together, I feel that I have failed them.
I try to see each person as an individual and encourage them to reach their full potential.
I also see education as the only viable pathway to alleviate suffering in the world. My work is to stay on this path as long as I am able.
