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.

Students enrolled in Live Online course sections will be interacting with each other through the use of Break Out rooms and other modalities facilitated by me.

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. I enjoy learning about brain theory and how to best incorporate brain friendly teaching strategies within the classroom. Other interests especially during this time of the pandemic is to help students experience a sense of safety in a virtual environment. I also intend to help students navigate the virtual realm of learning
