I joined the Department of Mathematics at Boise State University as a tenure-track mathematics education faculty member in Fall 2013. I held a similar position at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi (2010-2013) after completing a Ph.D. in Educational Mathematics from the University of Northern Colorado (2006-2010).
This year has been focused on developing partnerships. I’m teaching courses for elementary education majors, secondary mathematics education majors, and graduate students in mathematics education, as well as continuing a multi-year mathematics & science partnership for preparing teachers, starting-up a couple research projects, and directing the website for the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators.
