I came to Lindsey Wilson College in 1990 from Arkansas. Three things make Lindsey very attractive as a workplace: (1) the College's emphasis on teaching and learning, (2) the opportunity to work with preservice mathematics teachers in all grade levels, and (3) the rural locale of the College.

My academic interests include: (1) students' notions of 'proof,' especially in dynamic geometry environments, and (2) numeracy in other disciplines. Outside of academics, interests include: (1) the first thirty years of rock-and-roll music, (2) collecting redline Hot Wheels, and (3) bicycling.

My main goal in the teaching of mathematics is to foster students' understanding of the mathematics beyond the finding of answers to mathematical tasks.
