Small groups, individualized attention, student presentations, and silly puns are common place in my classes. Read over my teaching philosophy to see what I mean.

I have loved teaching since being a Math Tutor at James Madison University. I have helped students ranging from 3rd grade to parents returning to finish college learn that mathematics doesn't need to be scary. While in graduate school at Wake Forest University, I learned to work with larger groups of students as a Teaching Assistant and to encourage them to help each other.  At Bryn Mawr College, I worked with smaller groups and there had the rare opportunity to participate in the Perspectives in Mathematics Pedagogy course. I completed the requirements for the Dean’s Certificate in Pedagogy and was honored with the Doris Sill Carland Prize for Excellence in Teaching for my work.

Since Bryn Mawr College, I’ve taught at Pennsylvania State University Abington, at Smith College, and now Lebanon Valley College. I continually work to create an inclusive classroom with the faculty in my department and with guidance that I gained from the Sherrered Center for Teaching & Learning and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

Below are listed the courses that I have taught and my teaching experience.
