Most Memorable CCAC Experience
1) Hearing from former students, letting me experience a part of their success. 2) Pi Day Carnival, a yearly themed event held at North Campus during the week of March 14 (3.14), where we celebrate the uniqueness and complexity of with games and food. The carnival offers students the opportunity to experience mathematics in a creative way. The Pi Day Carnival that had an Olympics theme one year earned recognition from the National Math Honor Society and was featured in the Pittsburgh media.
Why I Teach What I Teach
I love mathematics, and I want to share that love with others. Mathematics is a fascinating and wondrous subject, and it shapes our world in every way. When a student experiences that wonder, it is greatly rewarding to me.
Something People Might Not Know About Me
I love to bake, and I have earned local recognition for my pie and trifle desserts.
