Educational Philosophy: Each student must experience the fundamental effort of problem solving and preparing the formal information as it relates to a Financial Accounting solutions. This can only be done when the student makes a strong effort to process all the class requirements. Homework, class assignments and testing are of major concern in this process, but classroom participation and team effort also is part of the effort asked of for each and every member of the class. Supporting those who make the effort is how I view my role as an instructor. No special treatment for exceptional students, just treat all farly so that there will be success and growth to all who make the effort. As an instructor I set proper standards and help each student reach the necessary level of performance to succeed.
