I started teaching in the 1996-1997 school year at a rural school in east central Ohio. While there, I taught business math, elementary algebra 1 & 2, and geometry. I came to my current school in the 1999-2000, started with calculus, pre-calc, trigonometry and algebra 1. over the years I've changed the math classes I've taught, even threw in a few middle school reading classes along the way. Math is my absolute favorite. I currently teach geometry, integrated 3, and algebra 3. No matter what I've been teaching, I've loved it.
I started in the era of lecture and example. I wish I could say that I've got the project performance thing completed nailed, but I don't. I keep trying, but I'm never quite satisfied with my work so I'm always try to improve on it.
None of my honors/awards came with evidence, really. I was asked by the senior class of 2007 to be the graduation speaker, I am facebook friends with a lot of my former students who still ask me for help now and then, Had the privilege of working with some of the best math educators in the country through a local college.

I'm the biggest math nerd I know ;) absolutely love a challenging problem!
