Year Graduated: 2019
Mathematics Education PhD

I have taught mathematics at Whatcom Community College in Bellingham, Washington since 2011. Before that, I taught at the community college, university, high school and middle school levels. Having become certified to teach in the US public school system, I am interested in investigating the differences between college instructors who have undergone pedagogical training and those who have not, and in particular, any differences in their students’ success. I am also interested in finding ways to engage students with the mathematics curriculum, especially at the developmental level; in particular, I am investigating the use of narrative for teaching mathematics. I am married, and I have one dog-child, and I enjoy reading, jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles and knitting.
