Dora believes that she can impart her diverse business experience to her students and help them be work, life and world ready. Dora’s approach to teaching is multi-disciplinary and she emphasizes the importance of soft skills because she believes that we need to prepare students for jobs that do not exist today. Her teaching approach is consistent with her motto which is “we need to prepare our students for a life-time of careers instead of a career for life”.
