Teaching: A True Career

BY FRANK MASCARI

Great issue! I am fascinated by your articles about teaching shortages (“ Teaching for the Love of It, JofA , Jun.06, page 30). In fact, every issue contains many important facts that help us all keep up and in touch with the times and our profession. I’ve made it a practice to pass along my JofA copies to students majoring in accounting.

Throughout my career as a CPA in public accounting and in business and industry, I have made teaching part of my agenda, teaching night courses and grading CPA exam papers.

I hope other members of the profession will explore a true career in teaching as I did. Teaching is a great contribution to the accounting profession and to society.
