Joseph Meersman Boylan reduced website

 

Joe Meersman is in his sixth year teaching at Boylan. He teaches Accounting 1, 2 and 3; Information Processing 1 and 2; Marketing; and Business Law. Joe spent the first five years after college in the business world, but realized he “needed more out of life” and started taking night classes while still working a full time job. Joe was nominated by one of his students, who wrote, “He has great enthusiasm every day and really tries to make a connection with his students. Not only is he a great role model, but a great teacher. He pushes us every day to be our best and to strive for the best. His devotion to the school really is inspirational.” Joe says he wants “the students to know they are the reason I teach. I do not see teaching as just my job. I see it as my calling and want to provide students extra help whether that be before or after school. I also want them to know that I support them in everything they do.” Further, he says, “…I have the awesome opportunity to inspire these students. I do not take that lightly, not only do I try to challenge them every day, I also try to challenge myself to be the best I can every day. As much as I try to inspire these students, I realize they also inspire me to be better every day. I made a commitment to help prepare the future of America and I wake up ready and excited for that challenge every single day.”
