Teaching Focus or Philosophy

My commitment to academic excellence and my professional experience provide a realistic basis for students to master difficult subjects. I emphasize critical thinking in the classroom, encourage thoughtful questioning, and also examine the difference between theory and practice. My teaching endeavor is to provide students with the skills and technical competence they will need for leadership roles in the accounting profession, business and society.
