What can I offer students? Students can encounter a challenging and interactive learning experience that will prepare them not only for future courses, but also for professional endeavors.
What do I expect from students? Students are expected to have an open and inquisitive mind, prepare accordingly by reading weekly material and interacting with the instructor and peers, and giving 110% effort in all aspects of the course. Students are expected to approach course work with the same professionalism and attention to detail as if they were actually working as an accounting professional in the industry.
What advice can I share with students from my experience? Timeliness and attention to detail are two vital traits in the accounting profession. Students should be willing to step outside of their comfort zones in order to encounter new challenges. Not all challenges will be positive, but will definitely be a learning opportunity to help guide you in developing and exploring your true gifts, talents, and interests. Recognize the inevitable fact that ‘LIFE HAPPENS’ and circumstances will arise that may discourage you along the way. Never stop striving for your goals!
