Marian is passionate in teaching. She regards this as a people's ministry with a mission to stimulate interest, encourage active learning, and at the same time bring in positive values. It is very challenging to meet, interact and learn with new students every semester. Without lowering the standard and quality, Marian is enthusiastic to try new things such as outcome-based approach to enhance teaching and learning activities. Although adjustments mean more effort and time, it is always encouraging to see improvement and meaningful work produced by the students.
