The 2018-2019 school year is my 25th year teaching young people mathematics. I was a middle school math teacher in the 1990s. Since 2001, I have been at the Rockdale Magnet School for Science and Technology in Conyers, Georgia. There I teach AP Calculus, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, History of Math, discrete mathematics (under the course name Advanced Finite Math), and Math of Industry & Government. I also run the RMSST Math Team.
I will do whatever it takes to help students see the joy of mathematics.
