Biography


I earned my Master's in Mathematics Education through the University of South Florida in 2007 in Secondary Math Education.  Through that experience, I came to believe that the largest barrier to learning math was not understanding the basic underlying principles.  I tend to focus on those basic principles and how they apply to the topics we're focusing on in a particular course.

I am currently enrolled at USF in the Ph.D. program in Instructional Technology.  I hope to use what I learn from that program to further improve my students' learning and add to others' understanding of teaching mathematics.

Outside of teaching, I am an avid ballroom dancer and compete in Mud Run obstacle courses.  I also take time to woodwork and homebrew whenever my busy family life allows.

I have created a number of videos on YouTube that are used in some of my courses.  You are welcome to preview them to get a taste of my style of instruction.
