Some of the Values that Shape My Work

Mathematics is something one does, not a body of knowledge that one takes in from others. Mathematics is an art form. One must take one's time in doing it as one would take time in painting a picture or writing a book.

Work with Families, Children, Schools, and Communities

Taught 4th through 6th grade and was a math specialist and teacher for elementary and middle school children and teachers.

Recent Professional Contributions

Works with teachers in their classrooms and teaches courses and workshops for teachers at the elementary and middle school levels. Has done extensive work creating online courses. Created The Math Place, an online community for teachers and parents to learn mathematics.
