I believe in the three “R”s: Rigor, Relevance and Relationships. A student should feel comfortable with their instructor and that instructor should provide lessons in a manner which is understandable and has meaning for the student.
I have a BS in Mathematics from the University of Mary Washington. I also minored in Computer Science.
I worked for 8 years as an Industrial Engineer in a telecom manufacturing facility. I have been teaching Math for the past 10.5 years. The first three years were in middle grades and the past 7.5 years have been at the high school level.
I enjoy spending time with my family as much as I can.
