Human capital is an extremely valuable factor in hires; it is important for employees to have extended knowledge and experience in their trade, and the necessary social skills to work on and for a diverse team. In the spring of 2017, a vacancy was posted for a financial literacy teacher. What better person to fill this need at HHS than Paul Goldstein, who has been on the accounting scene for more than 30 years.

It all started in August of 1987, after Goldstein’s graduation from Binghamton University, when he got his first job working in New York City for one of the largest public accounting firms in the world, Laventhol & Horwath. After a short three and a half years with the firm, he began a 14-year term with ImClone Systems Inc., a small Bio-Pharmaceutical company located in Bridgewater, New Jersey.

In 2005, Goldstein became an entrepreneur, creating the company Gold Financial, LLC. There, he helped small businesses, families, couples, and individuals manage their finances including providing budgeting, financial projection, business plan preparation, and other services. With 30 plus years of accounting experience under his belt, and having two daughters who are currently juniors at HHS, Goldstein is a perfect fit for the job as he has extended knowledge and is a part of the Hillsborough community. But why would he want to leave his life as an accountant behind?

“I wanted to give back all the knowledge I gained in the business and entrepreneurial community to the students,” Goldstein said.

In the 2017-2018 school year, Goldstein taught eight Financial Literacy classes, and one Accounting I CP class. This year, he is only teaching two Financial Literacy classes but added another accounting class, and four Business Organization and Management classes to his workload.

Although teaching is a bit different than accounting, Goldstein has no intention to give up his life as a teacher anytime soon.

“There were parts of all of my career areas that I enjoyed, but I can honestly say that I truly love coming to work every day as a teacher,” Goldstein explained. “The energy and passion that all of you teenagers bring to the classroom every day makes me smile.”
