Mr. Laird

 

I knew I wanted to be an accounting teacher from the time I was in high school because of my accounting teacher. 

 

I joined the Air National Guard to help me pay for college as my parents couldn't afford to send me. I've been working in the restaurant industry since age 16, and currently have worked for the same restaurant for 17 years. (CRAZY!)

 

I took some time off from college to work for Paychex, where I managed over 300 clients and processed their payroll and investigated any tax issues. I was set to go back to school in the fall of 2001, but due to 9/11, I was activated into full time active duty. 

 

I began going back to school in December 2001 and got my degree in May 2003. I worked at Nashua North from 2003-2005, took a year off to be a full time restaurant manager, and went back to teaching in Fall 2007 at Pinkerton Academy. I left there in 2013 and taught at Timberlane for 1 year, and now have been at Milford since August 2014 where I have been the sole accounting teacher and the FBLA Adviser. (I was named FBLA Adviser of the year 2017!) I am also an adjunct instructor with MCC and SNHU. I have been teaching at MCC since the Spring of 2014.
