Teaching Gen Z Accounting on TikTok with Rebecca Mendoza

Professor Rebecca Mendoza is the Lead Faculty for Accounting at Palo Alto College in San Antonio. She joins us to talk about how she is overcoming Impostor Syndrome to launch her teaching career and reach Gen Z students in new and relevant ways.

We learn what it’s been like for Rebecca to pivot from what could have been a career in corporate accounting to focus on teaching and reaching students in San Antonio. As a Hispanic woman, Rebecca reflects on the importance of being there for students who she hopes can see themselves in her. She talks about launching her TikTok channel to teach the finance and accounting skills so necessary in the lives and careers of her students and beyond.

It’s a deep dive into the mindsets of rising young educators that you won’t want to miss.
