Welcome to the website for, "So, You Want to Teach? A Practical Guide for CPAs Interested in College Instruction" We hope that you enjoyed the article and are glad that you want to know more. This website displays links to two different types of content.
Survey Results links you to the results of the survey described in the article. Sixty-eight PQ faculty responded to our survey. We asked several questions about their experiences as faculty. In addition, we asked them to contrast those experiences with their experiences in professional practice. We think you will find the results interesting.
Survey Comments links you to advice from those on the front lines - CPAs like you who have made the transition to the classroom. If you read on, you will see that their views are diverse. Some describe very satisfying experiences. Others describe environments that are clearly not satisfying and that they would have avoided if they had known what awaited. By coming here, any decision you make will be a decision informed by those who have gone before.
So, what can you take away from all of this information? We will let you draw your own conclusions. We will offer some advice, though. As you study the results and read the comments, try to listen to your intuition. Which findings and comments strike a chord with you? Which comments read like something that you would write? Can you see yourself five or ten years down the road thinking and feeling the same way?
