Once I returned to teaching, I quickly developed a reputation for being an innovative teacher whose new methods filled holes in the business curriculum. My classes were well received by students and my credentials ensured all that I taught know edgeably about the real world. I strived to know students and helped them tailor their education to their aspirations. My reputation as a teacher gave me freedom and so disruptions became opportunities.
