About me

Welcome to my home on the Internet.

I am now in my 15th year teaching math and yearbook at Valley Lutheran High School. This year, I teach, Honors Pre-Calculus, Advanced Placement Calculus AB, Introduction to Web Page Design, Survey of Mathematics, and advise the Yearbook. I also serve as Director of Communication and Information and as Registrar.

I hold a BA in Mathematics (1997) from Concordia University, Irvine, and a MAT in Mathematics (2009) from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.
