Master of Science in Secondary Math Education
Kaskaskia Engineering Association
What did you do before you began teaching at Kaskaskia College? Prior to coming to Kaskaskia College, I was a mathematics instructor at Sparta High School and part-time math instructor for Southwestern Community College. During my eight years at Sparta High School as a math teacher and math team coach, the math team won the State Math Competition for six consecutive years. Prior to this time frame, I was a petroleum engineer working on offshore drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.
Up to this moment, what is your proudest teach moment? My proudest teaching moment is when returning to the town of Sparta via parade after winning the ICTM (Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics) State Math Competition for the first time with my students that I had taught Advanced Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus.
