I am a Turkish language and literature teacher, but I am a student open to continuous learning. The best teacher who can always stay a student is my life vision. From this point of view, I integrate the STEM approach with the content of literary texts. I am working on the fact that social sciences are also a part of the STEM approach.

When he came to visit our country, he realized that this was his dream when he saw the Village Institutes.
