“I’m delighted to be working with students in Trinity’s nurturing, caring community. I have always loved math. I want my students to feel that same enthusiasm. I enjoy sharing the beauty, structure and diversity of math with the students. Math illustrates for us that we can use multiple different paths to reach the same correct solution. It shows us patterns not just in numbers and shapes but in the world around us. It challenges us to be detectives to solve stimulating problems and puzzles and then provides the personal satisfaction of following a problem to its completion. We see math all around us in art, music, science and nature. Math gives us a special way to enjoy the beauty in God’s world.”
