I’m a Mathematics Instructor at Surry Community College on the east side of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I have taught everything from developmental mathematics up to precalculus algebra and precalculus trigonometry. I currently serve as the liaison for the faculty teaching developmental mathematics. I am also a faculty sponsor for the Math Club on our campus in which we participate in different local events promoting critical thinking skills, logic, and, of course, mathematics. We also take our students on college visits to places they are considering transferring to as well as different programs they are considering such as engineering.
All of our math courses at Surry utilize WebAssign. We typically use it for homework and we have found it to be quite beneficial to our students’ learning as it can be challenging, but also instructive while they are still in the learning process.
I graduated from Salem College with a B.A. in Mathematics and Chemistry and earned my M.A. in Mathematics with a concentration in college teaching from Appalachian State University. I am currently attending North Carolina State University working on my Doctorate in Education.
In this tirelessly technology driven world, it is a necessity to have some partners in learning. As a faculty partner, I hope to increase other’s knowledge and confidence in WebAssign/Cengage and to increase my own understanding for the benefit of our students.
