'The environment was positively challenging. I liked to do the course with people not in my field, know their problems , and have an external point of view to solve mine.'
'To be a good teacher, one has to analyse the strengths and weaknesses of oneself. A good teacher is not only knowledgeable, but also good at giving this knowledge to other people with various personalities and backgrounds. Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of yourself, allows to assess your quality as a teacher at various situations and if necessary, make adjustments in behaviour.'
