Why I Teach

I enjoy the challenges of molding and creating the future accountants and business leaders of tomorrow. I know I am in the right profession when it finally clicks as students begin to understand difficult concepts.

By constantly asking questions and challenging my students with tough situations, they get out of their comfort zones and truly learn how to adapt and conquer challenges. There is no better feeling than a student saying, “I want to be an accountant because I took your class.”
