I am a SUNY Geneseo alumni with a degree in Mathematics with Secondary Education Certification, followed by a Masters in Mathematics Education. I taught high school and middle school until my children were born, at which time I began part-time work teaching night classes at Monroe Community College. I joined the math department at SUNY Geneseo in January 2007 where my duties include: work with the pre-service math teacher candidates, supervise student teachers during their semester-long field experience, teach Math 140 &141 (Math Concepts for Elementary Ed), Math 213,221,222 (Calculus I & II), Math 237 (Discrete Math), and Math 160 (Elements of Chance).
