Q: What do you teach?

     A: High School classes: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Trigonometry/Pre-calculus, and Math Applications.

     What have students in your class been learning this year?

     We cover a lot of topics, but a main theme is using and creating functions, which are mathematical rules that take an input to an output.

     How long have you worked as a teacher and how did you get started? What motivated you to become a teacher?

     This is my 20th year of teaching, I began in Greene in 1999.  I've had some great teachers over the years that have motivated me to become a teacher.  I enjoy helping kids and coaching.

     How would you describe your teaching style?

     I like to use a variety of ways to help students learn, but I usually present material, have students help each other (with a partner or group), and then have them do it individually.
