When East meets West - It took a long journey for me to reach the other side of the Pacific Ocean. It was a dream come true for me to pursue my graduate studies in the United States: MBA in International Business, M.S. in Business Education and a Ph.D. in Instructional Technology. I have been teaching business and computer software application courses for 7 years at both Concordia University Wisconsin and Skyline College. I have a keen interest in teaching, because it not only provides me with great satisfaction by helping my students to learn, but also challenges me to expand my horizons as well. Aside from being actively involved in my teaching career, I also enjoy working with research projects and business enterprises. I am currently in charge of the Title VI A Grant from the Department of Education which fosters business and international education. I am also involved with the Center for International Trade Development. I believe in pragmatism in education. As educators, we are responsible to prepare our students to be a competent, well informed, and educated citizens, ready to successfully function in the new millennium.
