In teaching, my overarching goal is effective student learning. My emphasis is on helping the student to learn, rather than just dispensing my knowledge to them. My mission is to help my students to develop an understanding of the concept, rationale and real world application of each of the accounting and finance techniques and methods covered in my class. When planning a course of instruction I will: 1) identify a set of objectives and skills; 2) compile a rationale for each objective and skill and 3) design a course plan that emphasizes the application of critical thinking skills to foster deep learning.
In 1994, I became an adjunct instructor in accounting and finance and immediately found that I loved doing that job more than my primary position. Upon migrating to a full-time teaching role at Fisher College, I have found it to be truly rewarding and something that I love to do. I am able to use my business experience to educate students on how the business world operates and to help them develop the accounting and finance skills needed to navigate through the dynamic and evolving business environment.
