I have taught mathematics at both the high school and community college level for seventeen years. Currently, I have the privilege of teaching Dual Credit College Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus. Now for some personal minutiae to make you feel as if I am a real person: Outside of school, I enjoy hiking (nature cures most afflictions), road trips (we DROVE to Los Angeles...in a Toyota Echo), reading (mostly fiction though I do make occasional exceptions), and having my picture taken with friendly Extraterrestrial Biological Entities (see Bob in photo to the left). I believe that Chacos go with everything (much to my family's chagrin). I watch Netflix while grading, so always peruse your returned papers carefully (no one's perfect)! I sometimes break into random accents (who doesn't occasionally wish they were British?). I firmly believe that nothing should happen before 10:00 in the morning; unfortunately, the state of Mississippi does not share that opinion...so...if I have to be at school by 7:30 a.m. (usually smiling), you can certainly make it there (with a pencil and a non-morose attitude) by 8:10!!
