My motivation for teaching:
My motivation fo teaching stems from the desire to guide students and help them think critically about the world around them. Mathematics offers students the opportunity to engage in this critical activity and therefore enables them to make competent, informed decisions that will directly impact their lives.

My favorite quote:
"I think Darwin was adopted."

"I went to a restaurant that serves 'breakfast at any time'. So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance."
