As an experienced mathematics educator for over 25 years in the high school and college environments, I developed a passion and personal commitment to help students succeed.
My goal with every student is to foster a genuine interest that leads to success in studying Mathematics.
As a teacher, there is no greater feeling than helping students realize their potential, and I look forward to helping your student successfully achieve his/her next goal in Mathematics.
I am inviting all students to connect with me for a journey up the learning curve in the wonderful subject we call Math.
My mission is to embrace the pursuit of excellence outside the classroom. I encourage critical thinking and emphasize the learning process over rote memorization.
As far back as I can remember, I have always loved mathematics. It was this love that inspired my initial desire to become a teacher. As my teaching career took off, I realized that there were obstacles to teaching math. Whether it was a student’s poor foundation that created a fear of the subject, a lack of confidence in studying math, or disinterest in the subject due to an inability to see its relevance, it became important for me as a teacher to make math more accessible, more engaging, and more relevant. This has guided me over the years as I sought to learn from my students and gain insights into how they learn.
Creating a warm, welcoming, and fun educational environment is essential to breaking down the barriers of learning math. I am here to make math more accessible because learning comes from asking questions, not just finding the answers.
A student being engaged is only part of the equation. A teacher making math more engaging is another part. It is my responsibility as a teacher to make math more engaging by being enthusiastic and sharing stories, whether historical or anecdotal, that help students make important connections.
I would be dishonest if I did not admit that I have had students ask me “why do I have to know this?” or comment “I will never have to use this in life.” However, I have learned throughout my teaching that by making math more accessible and engaging, students are better able to see its relevance.
Teaching is an art form! That is because teaching is nuanced and complex. It takes more than content knowledge. There has to be a desire to inspire students, so I will continue my enthusiastic approach, love of mathematics and will open the student's mind on discovering the beauty and the use of mathematics!
Mathematics is the most beautiful and most powerful creation of the human spirit.
