Biography


I believe that mathematics is important because it teaches us how to approach problems involving numbers and data. We live in a society where we have to make complicated quantitative decisions - about mortgages, cell phone plans, contracts, insurance, etc. Studying mathematics gives us the tools to be successful.  

I also believe everyone can be successful in their math courses. In the classes I teach, I emphasize practice in how to solve problems. I also instruct students on math study skills to help them do better in all their math classes. I like doing in-class group exercises because everybody gets a chance to be informal and ask questions. I teach using on-line programs such as ALEKS and MyMathLab. These programs contain the math textbook and homework problems as well as a lot of extra features like videos and tutorials.

I am a graduate of Florida State University (B.S. - Mathematics) and University of Texas at Austin (M.A. - Mathematics). My master's thesis was a statistical analysis of air quality data. I've worked in the enironmental field and in market research. I have taught at University of Texas at Austin, Boise State University, University of Idaho - Boise Center, and California State University - Channel Islands.

Besides teaching, I am a mom with two great daughters. I enjoy cycling and other active hobbies.
