My motivation for teaching:
I want to help others understand and appreciate the uses of mathematics in their daily lives.

My favorite quote:
This was on a plaque in the hallway of my old high school, "What you are to be, you are now becoming." (Author unknown). To me this meant, give a 100% effort in everything you do. Also, the kind of person you will become is shaped by what you do each day.
