Here is Ms. Vasili's philosophy on education:
"From my experiences both as a learner and an educator, I firmly believe that an educator who is passionate about the subject material can make learners passionate about it as well. Enthusiasm can motivate learners to learn more about a particular subject and encourage them to pursue their interests through further education or as a possible career. Furthermore, learners who are excited about the course material will enjoy learning, rather than viewing it as a dull or arduous task. I believe that education should teach learners the skills they can use in all the areas of their lives, not just in the classroom."
