    Please come see me before school, at office hours, or after school if you have questions about anything at all.  The best way to learn mathematics is by engaging in conversations about the material with your teacher and classmates, so I provide time in class on a regular basis for students to practice collaboratively.  I believe that the most important character traits that one needs to develop to succeed in mathematics are humility (you're going to be confused frequently, so it's best to be comfortable asking for help) and perseverance (you're going to be incorrect a lot, so it's best not to give up when you hit a roadblock).  It turns out that these qualities are useful in all aspects of life, which is why I place a great emphasis on their development in my classroom. 
    This is my sixth year at Hellgate, and I previously have taught mathematics in middle schools, colleges, and a prison.  I earned my bachelor's degree in cognitive neuroscience and psychology from Washington University in St. Louis, and my master's degree in mathematics from California State University, East Bay.  In my free time, I love to go backpacking with my wife and dog.  I also enjoy growing and cooking vegetables.
