have always loved math and originally was a math major in college before I changed my major to Art. Math has always
been an exciting adventure to me. I have always seen a relationship between
art and math. I love the challenge of solving math problems. The challenge
is all the more exciting because many problems have real world applications. Moreover, math provides us with models of the order and design which is true throughout all creation.
My goal is to share my enthusiasm for math with my students."
