LEO stands for the Lecturers Employee Organization, a union representing non-tenure track faculty at the three branches of the University of Michigan. LEO also supports campus communities through activities such as delivering bottled water to residents of Flint and funding scholarships for dependents of union members.

WeBWorK is a free online homework system first developed at the University of Rochester and maintained by the Mathematical Association of America.

I am a LEO III Lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Michigan–Dearborn. I serve the Department of Mathematics and Statistics as the course chair for Precalculus (Math 105), Calculus I (Math 115), and Calculus II (Math 116), and as the local support for WeBWorK.

The study of mathematics education is rapidly advancing as we recognize the significant challenges in teaching mathematics at all levels. Gender, race, and class disparities in STEM careers, deficient instruction in elementary and secondary schools, and a broadly innumerate populace are all serious threats to our future. Addressing moral imperatives as disparate as civil rights, income inequality, and climate change all require addressing inadequacies in mathematics education. This adds a strong sense of urgency to my interest in understanding what good instruction looks like at all levels of mathematics.

I've learned more than I can say from colleagues and researchers I have met. Foremost among those lessons is the importance of keeping students actively in control of their own education.

This fall I am teaching Calculus III for Engineering Students, Calculus III, and Introduction to Differential Equations.
