Welcome to Accounting I!  I hope you enjoy learning accounting as much as I enjoy teaching it.  I worked as a Certified Public Accountant for almost 20 years and I get great satisfaction in introducing students to accounting.  Accounting is called the language of business.  In this course you will learn how to analyze, interpret, and record business transactions.  You will also learn how to use the information you recorded and prepare financial statements.  Financial statements allow users, both people inside as well as outside the business, to see how the business is performing.  If you enjoy this class and intend on studying business at the college level, I highly recommend that you enroll in Accounting II which is now a dual enrollment class.
