Mathematics can be a complex and challenging topic for students and teachers.
The changes that continue in education have changed and challenged many teachers ways of delivering instruction in the classroom.
Many traditional methods have been proven to be less effective and the need to transform learning to meet research-based math practice standards is critical.
I am someone who identifies with the struggling student. Having failed high school mathematics, I felt the frustration and angst created by a lack of understanding. Now, I am someone who now loves math and love sharing his passion for math with others. For the past 22 years, I have worked with teachers, parents, and students to help bring understanding. And I am a life-long student, learning lots of new things along the way.
It has been my privilege to work with many amazing administrators and teachers in districts across the United States and in other countries. Here is a short list of those I have worked with:
- Aiken Public Schools
- Albuquerque Public Schools

Today, I continue to support the improvement of student understanding in mathematics and presents at national conferences such as the National Math Teachers, Council for Exceptional Children, Learning Disabilities of America, and International Dyslexia. My passion for teaching math comes through bringing excitement and understanding to all I serve.
