The learning we do should encourage continued learning. Knowing how is good, but knowing WHY is better. I want to help students learn methods for the how, but I also want to encourage them to dig deeper and work at getting the why.
I received my B.Ed degree from the University of Calgary. As a lifelong learner, I have taught myself various software packages to help create better ways to communicate math ideas, such as Geometer’s Sketchpad, Geogebra, Mathematica, Illustrator and Camtasia.
I’ve worked for many years in regular classrooms, 2 years teaching overseas in Hungary, and the last several years as an online teacher.
I orienteer, (map and compass), compete in adventure races and have participated in the Tour Divide (a bike race from Banff, Alberta to Antelope Well, New Mexico, along the continental divide). I love music and play the guitar and piano (I recorded a CD of original songs for family and friends).
