Bio

My love of mathematics starting when I was a child and my father would give me math problems to solve.  Throughout my education, I always wanted to know where I was going to use something before learning which led me to study applied mathematics and statistics.  One of my first jobs after graduate school was teaching statistics to mid-career management students. This course was my first experience teaching with a "hands on" approach and started my passion for education.  Before entering the teaching profession full time, I spent time supporting the researchers at Children's Hospital as the director of Research Computing. While it was interesting to help the doctors doing clinical research, I found that what I loved most about my job was teaching them how to analyze data.  I then knew that I needed to return to teaching full time.


What I Love about Emmanuel:

I enjoy helping students get the foundation to achieve life goals that require competence in math.  Often students face challenges to achieve mastery, and I am grateful for the opportunity to boost them in a positive direction toward their hopes and dreams.  Math can be a hurdle for some students, and it is a great pleasure to see someone who has worked hard to learn and grow have a breakthrough to the "aha!" moment.  I enjoy interacting with my colleagues, who are collegial and supportive. We have a great math department. I enjoy the tone of the school, where everyone demonstrates a commitment toward a spiritual journey as well as an intellectual one.  This is a great place to learn, and a great place to teach.
