About Me
What is your education background and experience?: 

Educated as an Industrial Engineer, worked 16 years in corporate world; served 24 years in the United States Air Force; earned teaching certificate / degree in math.  Taught Technology Education for 6 years before moving to mathematics.  This is my ninth year teaching math.

What do you love most about teaching?: 

Seeing the reactions in students "when they get it", even if its a small problem, or success on a quiz or test, especially when that student has struggled in math.  I enjoy finding out what student interests are and what makes them who they are.

What are your favorite hobbies or interests outside of school?: 

Coach both Girls & Boys Basketball here at Webber, as well as Track & Field, and Cross Country.
