I have been teaching since 1986. I teach mathematics and computer science. I graduated with a B.A. in Mathematics from Kalamazoo College. I earned an M.A. in Mathematics from the University of Maine and Western Michigan University. I am not certain why I decided to teach. I suppose I just fell into it. I do enjoy myself, these days. My goals in teaching are to communicate with my students, to engage them, and to help them learn how to think. I like it when my students realize that math is fascinating. I am happy when they want to learn, am creative, and have both a sense of humor, and a passion for living. In my spare time, I cycle, kayak, and ski.
