I enjoy relaxing with friends and family as we camp, boat, golf or just enjoy the outside. When I work with students or teachers I believe it is important to understand where they are at with their learning experience and then move forward from that point. Each person brings their own knowledge and experiences to the table. It is my belief that in order to help each person's learning grow, we must focus on hands on experiences that make sense to them and build their mathematical understanding.
