I am a retired educator with 31 years of teaching experience. During my career, I taught in the public school system and as a full-time community college professor. My true calling is working with students of all ages that need to develop a stronger mathematical foundation. In 2010, I wrote the entire curriculum for an adult arithmetic-based developmental math class in the format of a work text. The curriculum has helped to significantly improve success rates among the adult developmental math students. It is such a rewarding experience to be able to help a student conquer their math fears and move forward with their educational journey!
I like to keep students engaged and active during class time. Whenever possible, I use hands-on activities to help students discover relationships and make connections between concepts. My goal is to help students develop a positive attitude and gain mathematical confidence.
