Dr. Khan the Teacher
After graduating from Kentucky in 2004, I started to think about my life and my future. It did not take long for me to find what I really wanted to be, a teacher. I have a passionate personality and issues in the world deeply impact me. I believe with a deep conviction that teachers have the potential to change the world, one student at a time. Teaching thus became my way of having a positive influence in the world and impact the people I interact with in the classroom and beyond.
I started my academic career in a business school. I decided to begin my doctoral studies in Michigan. I loved Michigan, it’s snowy winters and pleasant summers, enjoyed my time there with friends and family.
Dr. Khan’s Teaching Philosophy
My role as an educator derives its greatest strength from the realization that I can make a positive difference in the lives of others. I can contribute by helping create a nurturing environment for students, which leads to innovation and critical thinking. My approach to teaching reflects my experiences with my own teachers and mentors, as well as my belief that classrooms provide unique sites to explore emerging ideas. I know how much I have benefitted from excellent, dedicated teachers and my goal is to similarly contribute to my own students, whether online or face-to-face.
