I studied Computer Science at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. After 10 years as a computer programmer with IBM and Washington Mutual Bank, I completed a Transition to Teaching in Math at IUPUI, followed by a Masters in Math Ed. I have been teaching Math and Computer Science for 10 years.

I have worked as a computer programmer, and I have spent many years teaching. I am passionate about bringing computer programming to life, by making it work and making it meaningful for the students. What is my mission in teaching? Computer Programming is the Math of the 21st Century, just as Calculus was the next big thing for Newton and Leibniz. Despite the massive current and projected need for computer programmers, computer programming courses are electives. I want these courses to count.
