I found the following information that Mark provides to his class instructive: Your instructor wants to prepare you to be successful in the business world. To do so, you must be able to speak the language of business — the language of business is accounting. Our class will concentrate on learning the mechanics of accounting, including preparation of the 3 financial statements; income statement, statement of owner’s equity, and balance sheet. Hands-on exercises, real world experiences and class participation will be emphasized.
About me: I have been teaching accounting for over 20 years. Since 2013, I have devoted myself to teaching on a full-time basis. My professional background includes experience in the banking, real estate, and healthcare industries, as a chief credit officer, chief financial officer, and a controller.
Mark is engaging, quick witted and enjoyable to be around. However, he is also someone who will challenge budget assumptions and challenge the way data is presented. He has extensive experience as a underwriter for high stakes loans and know the importance of asking the tough questions.
Mark will make a significant contribution to our efforts to ensure our faculty will have transparent and understandable data on the District’s financial positions.
