TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Previously, I spent over 23 years in many areas of telecom network planning, implementation, and project management at MCI, Vartec, and Charter. A particular emphasis was in cost analysis and project implementation during 20+ years in various levels of management. The past few years have seen my increasing involvement and study of the need in education to tie students more closely to business skillsets through greater use of tech in their classroom. There is a critical need to provide instructors with tools to engage the digital natives (students) in their tech culture. Although in many cases the technology is now there, the instructors aren’t afforded the time to investigate the myriad applications for relevance. I began teaching high school math (Algebra 2 and Precalculus) in the Fall of 2010 and am slowly working in elements of digital transition.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I open sections with a view of real world relevance of the topic that we are about to delve into, spend some classtime on lecture, and then have students delve into the topic to do some discovery on their own.
