Teaching

Teaching

Shaped by my past instruction, I recognize the responsibility to provide students with a positive mathematical experience. This is especially important in service courses, which are often terminal courses, where students may have developed a negative attitude toward mathematics. I remember the teachers who were successful in fostering my interest in the material they taught. I incorporate my favorite memories into my own teaching. In my experience, successful teachers made learning enjoyable by doing special examples and applications that were relevant and stimulating. They told stories about their own experiences with mathematics. They showed a genuine love for the craft. In the same spirit, I try to impart a love for mathematics in my students by sharing my joy for teaching, the way my favorite teachers did for me.
