Philosophy

Many students are intimidated by mathematics but as an instructor, I endeavor to show my students that mathematics is a beautiful, interesting, and fun subject. As a graduate student, the biggest influences on my teaching have been my students, the knowledge I have obtained about math pedagogy while participating in the RUME program at OU, and seminars I have attended for the Center For Teaching Excellence (CTE). At OU I have taught a variety of courses, including college algebra, precalculus/trigonometry, single and multivariable calculus, and business calculus (see below). Each semester I look forward to teaching, and hope that my students enjoy taking my courses as much as I enjoy teaching them!
