Learning is an active process. As an instructor, I help students to construct their own knowledge through engaged learning experiences. Too often students are worried about making mistakes or getting the wrong answer in class. However, we can often learn more from a wrong answer than a correct one. The classroom should be a safe place to explore new ideas, ask questions, and make mistakes.

I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics here at Florida Southern College. Then I went on to graduate school and earned a Ph. D. in mathematics from Auburn University. I taught for nine years at a small private college in Wisconsin before returning to FSC. It's great to be back!
