TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching math at a community college for almost 20 years, covering pre-algebra through Calculus II and everything in between. I also have a daughter in elementary school, so I work on the grade-school level circuits with the teachers at her school

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style varies from traditional lecture and discussion to cooperative-learning (constructivist style). I know that students learn by doing, so I've been working to include more active learning in my courses.
