What is your math story?

I am passionate about teaching and learning. My mission is to empower people in mathematics and transform their math efficacy and self-concept to one that says “I can do this”… “Math is fun”… and “Math is everywhere.” My purpose is to enhance the learning experiences of those struggling with mathematics and share those experiences. I am an educator, researcher, and public speaker.

My areas of interests are professional learning, mathematics education, assessment, and educational leadership.
