Biography 

My goal as a mathematics instructor is to help students gain the ability to think about problem solving strategies in mathematics.  My approach to mathematics teaching is involving students in their learning.  I use cooperative learning strategies in every course on a daily basis.  Students participate in activities that involve groups as well as individual work.

Academic Interests 
My academic interests include engaging with students enrolled in my mathematics courses. I use cooperative learning strategies promoted by David and Roger Johnson. Other interests include learning about brain theory and how to best incorporate brain friendly teaching strategies within the classroom.
