I've taught high school mathematics for 24 years, including Honors Precalculus, Algebra 2, Geometry, Algebra 1, Math Fundamentals, Computer Programming (Visual Basic, Delphi Pascal, Php, GW-BASIC) and Chess.
I like to keep things on the positive side with random humor, fun multimedia and wacky illustrations, while still infusing rigor and accountability in the class. My classroom is generally viewed as a place students look forward to coming to, even if math isn't a favorite of theirs.

• B.S. Business and Marketing/Advertising, Arizona State University • M.Ed Secondary Education, Arizona State University
I play jazz trumpet professionally, having performed with Grammy-winning artists The Four Tops, Natalie Cole, The Temptations, jazz great Joe Henderson, The Woody Herman Big Band and many others. Played to a packed house (as a sideman) at the Hollywood Bowl.
