My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from ASU with my bachelor’s degree in secondary math education, and from NAU with my master’s degree in math education. I began teaching high school mathematics in 1990 in the Gilbert District and college mathematics in 1997 having taught at ASU and currently at Rio Salado Community College part-time.

My Educational Philosophy

I think, similar to what Einstein said about Education: Education is not as much the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.
