Dan Wirkus
Accounting Instructor

I grew up on a farm in western Minnesota. (My Dad's farm actually bordered South Dakota!) My passions have remained unchanged over the last 40 years. I love my wife and our three grown children. Before I began teaching I worked in the fields of accounting and taxation. Teaching accounting led me first to Pipestone, MN, for a few years before leading me to Albert Lea. I find Accounting & Tax challenging and exciting. I enjoy sharing my expertise, even online. I am proud of being able to include the principles of Quality Matters into my course-work.
