My motivation for teaching:
I love making math accessible to all students. Creating success for struggling students and demonstrating where math is used in real life are the most rewarding parts of my job.

My favorite quote:
There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

-Benjamin Disraeli

A personal humorous school story:
I have a story that is not humorous, but it is memorable. In my first semester of teaching, I worked at an inner-city school of sophomore students who had earned a GPA in the range of 0.0 to 0.5 during their freshmen year. It was one of the most challenging times of my life. On my 23rd birthday, my students surprised me with balloons, cakes, and cards. I will never forget it.
