When it comes to achieve the goals and complete the given task, US Army teaches soldiers great planning, patience, enthusiasm, passion and mission readiness. I am Army Veteran. I appreciate and thankful for every great day I spent and served for this great country.
I volunteered to teach Accounting to soldiers and their family members at Barton Community College where I met so many amazing people! I felt so happy and satisfied assuming sense of responsibility that I am giving my contributions to something really big, somebody's future! and this is the reason why I take my teaching job very seriously.
Accounting is a language of business and should be taught very carefully as it is a very vast subject containing examples and situations from the business practices, you can relate this beautiful and interesting subject with any business even any activity which is undertaken to earn profit/loss.
Most of the time people confuse Accounting with Maths, which is absolutely not correct. My great teacher used to say "Accounting is nothing but concepts and principles" and "Assets=liability+capital" and trust me I can prove it from any book of Accounting in the world.
