Dr. Ibrahim Ashour’s life-long motto is “To teach is to learn twice.” His philosophy of teaching, briefly speaking, revolves around his role as a participant and communicator of knowledge. In medicine, there is a main belief to “do no harm,” and he strongly believes that this applies as well to teaching. It is for this reason that conscience is most important to him in teaching. Furthermore, students and schools are changing, and he believes that we, as teachers, need to meet these shifting needs and to remember that we are in a continual state of learning and adapting.
