JR. HIGH MATH TEACHER
I am an education professional driven to inspire students to achieve personal and academic success. I have been with Ivy Hall since 2017. I teach and motivate students to learn and conceptualize secondary school mathematics as well as train teachers and advise on curriculum.
I have been a Mathematics Professor at Brigham Young University since 1995. I teach, challenge, and motivate students through in-depth discussions and conceptual group work in mathematics education courses for elementary and secondary math teachers as well as various courses in the mathematics department such as College Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus I, II, and III. I supervise, teach, and facilitate group discussions with BYU Math Student Teachers who are learning to teach math to 7th through 12th grade students in the public schools. I work closely with cooperating math teachers and students in the public schools. I was also the BYU Math Lab Administrator from 1995 to 1999. I managed, trained, and scheduled approximately 60 to 70 employees a semester as well as taught mathematics majors how to effectively teach and tutor Algebra through Calculus. I taught BYU mathematics courses as well. I mentored mathematics graduate students in teaching College Algebra. From 1993 to 1995 I was a Math Professor at Utah Valley University where I taught Intermediate Algebra, College Algebra/Trigonometry, Calculus I, Calculus II, and Calculus III. I also taught in the public schools in Arizona at Gilbert High School and Mesquite Junior High School from 1988 to 1990 where I taught math and served on education committees and served as an adviser for youth clubs and sports. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and Political Science at Brigham Young University and earned a Master’s Degree in Mathematics and Mathematics Education at Brigham Young University.
