Teaching History

I have nearly a decade of 6-16 mathematics teaching experience. I enjoy teaching all mathematics, but I am particularly interested in best practices for teaching introductory mathematics and statistics at the undergraduate level.

I have a M.S. in Education from the Johns Hopkins University and am in the process of earning my M.A. in Mathematics from Saint Louis University. I am a certified 7-12 mathematics teacher in the District of Columbia and 5-12 mathematics teacher in the State of Missouri.

Unless otherwise noted, one section of each class was taught in the denoted time period. A typical section has 20-35 students.
