I have taught every course offered in the math department during my tenure at UNCSA. These courses are Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II Foundations, Algebra II Advanced, Advanced Math, Advanced Functions and Modeling, Precalculus, AP Calculus, and AP Statistics. I am very organized when presenting new concepts to students, but I also like for students to discover concepts on their own when appropriate. For this reason, students always sit in groups and are encouraged to work together on a daily basis. I want my students to see how math works in the world around them and I want my students to feel confident in their ability to do mathematics.
