Tell us something interesting about yourself that your students may not know.

I worked for Coopers & Lybrand, then one of the big-eight accounting firms, which later was merged by Price Waterhouse (now PriceWaterhouseCoopers). I also worked for WorldCom, which collapsed and went bankruptcy two years after I left. I'm still surviving, but those big guys are all gone. So, no matter how small you are, you can do better than big fellows if you try your best. And FYI, I was not the one who broke up those companies.
