Hosna Khorsamdi

I am Hosna Khorsandi from Iran. I am so excited that I am joining ELPS for doctoral studies. I am a Professional Educator and Assistant Principal who delivers the material with a touch of comedy, music, and digital media to keep students involved and learning.

I am looking for a way to make learning enjoyable and my goal is to create an educational environment equal to using the latest technologies in the world for all students.

At this time I am going to tell the world that I am a member of this new and amazing group of doctoral students [at the University of Denver]. From now on DU is my whole life.
