I had the opportunity of spending some time recently with John Min from Northern Virginia Community College. We had a great dinner at the best restaurant in Lexington, Kentucky on Friday night. He was in town to speak at the University of Kentucky's Economics Teaching Conference.
John had a very successful career in finance before he came to the realization that what he really wanted to do in life--his dream--was to teach economics at the community college level.
If you have never heard John speak, try to get to a conference where he is presenting. You will be energized, uplifted and will take away some great teaching ideas.
Here is a treasure trove of resources from John.
