I have been teaching mathematics for 13 years and I really have enjoyed each year. I have taught many different courses over the years including Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, Calculus, and Personal Finance. One of my goals as a mathematics teacher, regardless of the age or level, is to have a student leave my class feeling like they can be successful in math. I believe every student can find success at some level and everyone's idea of success is defined different. My goal is to help students find where they are comfortable and what their definition of success is. Whether its passing a calculus class or learning how to add negative numbers, you can have success. My hope is that every student of mine leaves my class with the confidence that no matter what level they are at, they can succeed. "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts." - Winston Churchill
