First of all, I enjoy teaching. I consider it a privilege to share the classroom with my students. My style is somewhat informal but organized, and I encourage interaction. I expect students to stay on top of their reading so that lectures can be used to broaden a student’s understanding of the material. So, I'm not a straight from the book lecturer. I always try to mix in a few of life's little lessons into the lecture. Because I believe that effective written communication is vital to success in the world of business, I like to include several writing assignments in my courses. The bulk of my 35 year professional career has been in corporate IT consulting services focusing on outsourced HR and financial reporting solutions.
