Associate Professor, Mathematics
Office: HR 352
Academic Qualification: B.S., Mathematics & Secondary Education, Salisbury State University; M.S., Mathematics, West Virginia University; Ed.D., Mathematics Education, West Virginia University
I grew up in Maryland and attended Salisbury University. So I decided it was time to come back to the state that really knows how to cook seafood and has the best beach in the continental US in Ocean City. I have been teaching mathematics since 1995. When I am not teaching mathematics, I enjoy going to amusement parks and riding roller coasters. ( I have ridden over 200 coasters) The geographic location of Howard CC is great for this since the mid-Atlantic region has a concentration of great coasters and it's close to BWI for getting to other parks. Ask me about a coaster in the US and I've probably ridden it. I am a classically trained percussionist and enjoy playing from time to time. I also enjoy eating out, exploring cities, railfanning, and going to see musicals (and yes I am a Gleek!).
My professional areas of interest are: special sequences of numbers, the mathematics of puzzles and games, students understanding of mathematical functions, mathematics teachers content knowledge, and of course the mathematics of roller coasters.
