You will learn with me when taking courses in Algebra and Probability & Statistics.
My experience includes teaching in many educational settings – public high school, private high school, homeschool all ages, and homeschool high school co-op. I taught several years on the college level as an adjunct instructor but now get the privilege of teaching at NGU full-time.
I have always wanted to be a teacher, and I have always loved mathematics. To some that is weird, I know, but it is so rewarding to see students grasp a concept that previously gave them difficulty. Teaching on the college level was a goal of mine as a young adult, and now God has seen fit to gift me that opportunity daily. It is an honor and a privilege to teach math in light of my Christian worldview. I am energized as I interact with students. Hopefully, I challenge students to grow academically and spiritually.
