I have taught at Santa Fe College for over twenty years and can't imagine being anywhere else. I fell into accounting as a sophomore at UF when I was shopping around for a major. I am a CPA, licensed in the State of Florida, and continue to enjoy learning more about accounting. My husband and I and both of our children graduated from UF, so we are a definite Gator family.
Accounting is not a math class. Accounting is like a big puzzle, so it is more like a logic class.The level of math that we do in accounting is pretty basic, so relax if that is causing you stress. Accounting has a ton of practical applications in your daily life and I hope I can help you see the relevance of what you are learning.
My Teaching Philosophy
I am committed to helping students get a thorough understanding of accounting basics and to helping them in any way that I can. I have a great deal of respect for all the things our students juggle in their lives. I love everything Santa Fe stands for and hope to really make a positive difference in your experience here.
