I'm so glad you found me! I am here to help YOU, my student. My favorite part about teaching is watching you learn. I love the realization when you understand and the questions when you don’t. Please don’t be a stranger. Visit me during office hours, talk with me before and after class, and let me know more about you. I strive to make my classes interesting and relevant, and sometimes that includes personal stories, so you’ll learn about me too.

About My Classes:
I teach collaboratively and interactively, with students directly applying concepts in group work and relevant applications. I strive to use free resources as much as possible, so students do not need to pay for textbooks or materials. Most of my classes are supported by textbooks in LibreTexts or OpenStax, and homework assignments are provided by MyOpenMath.
Online and Hybrid:
- Tests are online with NO proctoring software. Students have three days to choose from to take the test, and have 2 hours to complete the test in one sitting.
- I use Canvas and YouTube videos to support learning.
- Statistics: tests are in-person in two parts: Part 1, no notes; Part 2 open notes/book. Part 1 tests on concepts and vocabulary; part 2 tests on detailed procedures and understanding.
- Algebra, Calculus, Trigonometry: tests are in-person with scientific calculator and no notes.
Bachelor of Science, Mathematics; Elon University
Master of Science, Applied Mathematics; Texas Tech University
I firmly believe that every student must and can learn to think mathematically. I am dedicated to offering students a variety of learning supports, including utilizing brain research and growth mindset activities designed to enrich, personalize and holistically support their academic success.
I have been teaching math at the postsecondary level since 2001 and at Las Positas since 2007, including classes from prealgebra through multivariable calculus, linear algebra and discrete mathematics. In addition to teaching math, I advise the Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society (AGS) and Math Club at LPC. I am also the State AGS Chair of Scholarships and Awards. I have also served as the Mathematics Department Coordinator, Math Learning Center Coordinator, and Coordinator of the Basic Skills Student Outcomes and Transformations Grant (to help students accelerate through mathematics and English pathways), Basic Skills Committee Chair, and Student Equity and Achievement Committee Co-chair. Currently, my educational interests include best practices for equity of marginalized students, mathematics education for elementary students and teachers, computing in Statistics courses, and pursuing open educational resources (better known as “free textbooks”) for classes.
