Philosophy of Teaching: Through my teaching, my goal is that my students will share my love of learning in order for that learning to make a difference in their lives. As a result, they in turn will then be able to make a difference in the lives of others.
It is my hope that through the interactions that I have with my students that they accomplish several key outcomes. I hope that they become articulate, well-informed businessmen and women who can proactively participate in meetings, in presentations, in negotiations, and in any other walk of life in which their business training is called upon.
As I enter the classroom environment and begin daily interaction with the students, I always focus on providing a caring, supportive, and open atmosphere where learning is free to take place. I want students to know that courses like accounting are often quite challenging, but not impossible for the student who applies himself/herself. I believe that the student in most collegiate environments would quickly feel at ease with my methods and come to my classes ready to learn.
Special Areas of Expertise/Interest: While I love teaching all levels of accounting, I’m particularly interested in taxation as well as advanced levels of accounting.
