Being a good teacher entails more than just being a subject matter expert. One must be able to bring the topic to life for their students. A few years after completing my MBA, a former professor contacted me and asked me to teach a course. I was flattered and scared at the same time. Nonetheless, I decided to give it a try. It turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. I have continued to teach and am currently an instructor at two colleges. In addition, I hold a full time position in Human Resources which allows me to bring relevant and topical information to the classroom. My goal is to help my students succeed. Everyone is capable of an “A”, it just takes some longer than others to achieve.
