I have three goals for any course that I teach: to foster critical thinking, to promote mastery of course content, and to encourage application of course materials to real-world examples.
What area do you teach?
Accounting, Economics and Finance
Master of Accountancy from Univ. of Mississippi in 2006
Bachelor of Business Administration from Zhejiang Gongshang Univ. in 1999
Your philosophy of teaching:
My philosophy of teaching can better be described as a philosophy of learning. I focus on student learning and adjust my teaching strategies in response to the pace and depth of student understanding. I view teaching as an interaction between an instructor and a student; thus, the impact of this interaction on learning, rather than my activities as an instructor, is of primary importance. I have three goals for any course that I teach: to foster critical thinking, to promote mastery of course content, and to encourage application of course materials to real-world examples.
Why did you decide to teach?
I like to help students learn the course materials and apply what they learn to real world practices.
I have worked as a senior accountant at Black Hills State University for 6 years. As an accountant, I am a good team worker and self-motivated. I have taught accounting courses for two years and economics and finance courses for one year.
I am a CPA.
