Schedule: My current schedule is available online. Feel free to make an appointment if you can't make my scheduled office hours, or just stop by and see if I'm available.
Teaching: As one of the math educators in the department, I frequently teach courses for pre-service teachers in addition to more traditional mathematics coursework. Click the teaching link for details.
Research: As a mathematics educator, I am interested
in how students come to understand mathematics. My background and
current research is focused on procedural understanding in algebra and
algebraic thinking; see
the WITQ 2007-08 link for more
information on a related project, or click the
research link for more information.
I am also currently exploring the use of podcasts and SMART BoardTM technology in my teaching, and I have been involved in the Praxis-WI project for creating online learning objects to help students prepare for the Praxis tests.
Personal Interests: Canoeing, hiking, camping, digital photography.
