Current Course: MATH 4022 Introduction to Graph Theory

Every aspect of my teaching is focused on the individual. My lessons are filled with student interaction and I incorporate discovery learning whenever possible. This semester, I am implementing a mastery-based grading system for exams. (Course Website.) In addition to learning the course material, I require that my students exercise their logic and reasoning skills as I encourage them to become life-long learners.

Since earning a bachelor's degree in adolescence education, I have accumulated 9 years of teaching experience at 3 different universities as the Instructor of Record for 11 distinct courses (and 23 sections) ranging from service courses (College Algebra) to major courses (Introduction to Graph Theory), ranging in size from 20 to 100 students. I have managed undergraduate and graduate graders and teaching assistants, in addition to serving as the mentor for graduate teaching assistants. Each new semester, I draw from my past experiences and explore new methodology to challenge each student, highlight applications, and build a solid foundation for my students' future career paths.
