As I was growing up my parents often commented that I should go into accounting. A strange thing to say maybe, but seeing as I kept a balance sheet for my piggy bank since the age of ten and you can see why.
Logic, analytical skills and attention to detail are three important attributes you need to excel at accountancy. Add these to the drive, ambition and the ability to communicate on all levels, and you are perhaps a tenth of the way to having everything a good accountant should have.
I believe I have a number of these attributes, but more importantly, I want to learn and develop the ones I don't have.
I have always excelled at school, particularly in maths and the sciences. I have studied maths, economics and business studies, and believe these three subjects have given me an excellent foundation to build on my accountancy studies.

What is your teaching philosophy?
The good teacher knows and understands students, and how they develop and learn. I know that students actively construct and transform their own knowledge based on past experiences and prior learning. I know that students do not all learn in the same way or at the same rate. I believe it is my responsibility as a teacher to be an effective diagnostician of students’ interests, abilities, and prior knowledge. I must then plan learning experiences that will both challenge and allow every student to think and grow.
