I earned my B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Missouri-Rolla, and my M.S. in Computer Science from Texas A&M - Commerce.
I was born & raised in Washington, MO, about 50 miles West of St. Louis. My 10 siblings and I have a great deal of fun when we get together!
Hiking, playing guitar, bird watching, and making herbal oils are my favorite hobbies. I also enjoy volunteering with the Carroll County Search & Rescue Team, and I am active in my church. My daughter is in the 6th grade this year, and I really enjoy hanging out with her!
I realize that Math is difficult for many students, and so I try to make the course enjoyable and inviting by having a relaxed atmosphere where students can safely explore the subject, and I try to make the course relevant by including real-world scenarios where using Math was personally helpful for me.
