I enjoy playing with numbers of patterns and find great pleasure in helping others to learn mathematics. I am also interested in new pedagogies such as the use of e-portfolios and classroom response systems as well as more traditional methods. I also find working with K-12 teachers very rewarding as a great opportunity to simultaneously teach and learn.
