Personal Statement
Accounting is not math! It is more similar to learning a foreign language, which requires practice, practice, and more practice! I strive to build interactive class discussions, demonstrate examples, and provide opportunities for students to work through many examples in class. However, students that most succeed in class are those that put the time and energy outside of class to practice this new language!
