TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching secondary math for over ten years and I am beginning to see mathematics everywhere these days. I specialize in all levels of Algebra, Pre-Calculus, and Statistics. I am learning that Mathematics is the language of the universe and Algebra is the grammar of that language. I see it everywhere and hope I can create some useful lessons to help students see things my way as well.
