•I teach courses in both Finance and Economics, I always thrive to help my students develop intellectually, professionally, and personally for the long term, I teach courses that help students think - not memorize, communicate cogently - not list information, and become emotionally connected - not passively receive. Because, after all, education is not just passing test after test, only to find that one's knowledge is gone a few short months after the last exam. While teaching, I also constantly remind myself to appreciate the wonderful opportunity I've been given as a professor-the rare privilege and joy of changing someone's life path by making a direct, deep, and long-lasting difference in the way someone thinks and how he or she sees the world. • I also realize that without sincere concern for the students' welfare, an ability to see things from their perspective, and the patience to listen and hear beneath the surface of their words and actions, that all the intellectual knowledge in the world will not help me be a truly effective teacher or mentor. Whether with MBAs or undergraduates, teaching is not just providing knowledge, but changing students' thinking patterns. • Mainly, the advantages of being a provider in education is the satisfaction that you get from contributing to a community such as our university and to the society in general. It gives me a lot of happiness when I see the expressions on the students' faces that immediately tell me that they learned something new today! I like the fact that as someone in higher education, I have the opportunity to make a positive influence on a young person's life.
