The 2018-2019 schoolyear will be my 21st in Haslett, and I am continuously grateful for the opportunity to work in such a supportive community. Our entire math department appreciates the outstanding students and parents we get to collaborate with on a daily basis. I have taught pretty much every level of math in the building over that time from Beginning Algebra to Calculus II. I was honored as the 2015 Milken Educator Award recipient and served last year on the Michigan Teacher Leadership Advisory Council at the Michigan Department of Education. I also am on the Alumni Advisory Board for the College of Education at Michigan State University.
I am focused this year on making my students better problem solvers, helping them effectively communicate their mathematical ideas, and embracing the idea of sharing their work with a larger audience. Last year, my Calculus II class had a problem published on the Riddler portion of the political website fivethirtyeight.com. I would love to find similar opportunities for my students this year.
