I know math gets a bad wrap sometimes, so I wanted to bring a different approach to it. Anyone can do math and I want to help people see that. Plus, I want to have a positive impact on my students and help them pursue the lives they want to have.
My students are the most rewarding part of teaching. I love building relationships and watching students grow as learners. Every day is different and I can thank the students for that.

I also like skiing, hiking, biking, fishing, building things, running races, and putting puzzles back together... If it's outside in Colorado with my family: I'm sold.

I am a firm believer in students owning their choices. I allow students to forge their own path. I want to create learners that are prepared for what happens after Polaris and I feel I would be doing them a disservice by preventing them from making their own choices and experiencing the results for themselves...whether it's good or bad. A person needs to have the want to learn; it cannot be forced.
