Describe your teaching style:

My teaching style involves a Socratic, interactive approach to learning. I constantly query students and give them appropriate feedback. Students are also given the opportunity to practice authentic algebraic manipulations in the classroom environment.

What do you like most about teaching?
Watching the eyes of a formerly perplexed student, when the blinding flash of insight comes and math finally becomes understandable. It is at this moment when the student begins to enjoy math (when math and the student become one). I also like the smell of chalk in the morning.

What do you like least about teaching?
Students who don't want to learn, paper work, and having to give a student a failing grade. I also dislike the smell of chalk in the late afternoon.

What do you expect from your students?
Come to class on time and be prepared to participate in the class milieu.

What should they expect from you?
That I come to class prepared. They should also expect me to be willing to help them.

Areas of interest outside the classroom:
Family, church, and sports (soft ball, racquet ball and bowling).
