Background Information

Prior to coming to the Regional Math and Science Center, I was a high school math teacher for 3 years. Although my favorite subject is algebra, I enjoyed teaching not only algebra but also geometry, algebra 2, Spanish, and statistics. Throughout those years, I also enjoyed coaching tennis and volleyball, starting a chess club, and chaperoning various trips.  While I was at Hope College, I had the opportunity to study abroad for a semester in Salamanca, Spain.  Also, I completed undergraduate research in student misconceptions in the math classroom.  As part of the research, we conducted a three day Professional Development for teachers on identifying and correction student misconceptions.  During the past five summers, I enjoyed working with the Trio Upward Bound program at Hope College.
