I love mathematics for its ability to train the mind. The study of mathematics teaches us to question our assumptions, explore new avenues, and justify our conclusions; it also gives us methods for doing these things. I believe that all students can learn mathematics at a high level and benefit from their mathematical training. I hold students to high standards which they are fully capable of meeting and give them the support they need to reach their goals. Students in my classes will participate in the mathematical enterprise and learn not only useful mathematical facts, but ways of thinking that can be applied throughout their lives.
