By all accounts, teachers are an underappreciated lot. But, accounting teachers have an especially difficult job. The topic, itself, isn't generally considered exciting, and it requires a special type of instructor to create compelling course material that will keep students engaged and learning.
Dr. Tim Kizirian knows this better than most. Known for injecting a sense of humor into his accounting and auditing curricula, Dr. Kizirian has been a valuable member of the CSU, Chico business faculty since 2000. As a well known and respected accounting teacher, he can offer a unique perspective on what it takes to make a successful career preparing tomorrow's CPA's.
