SUMMARY OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE
1. Teaching at many different academic levels: from middle school to upper division classes at Marillac College for students preparing to become high school mathematics teachers and upper division classes at Cardinal Glennon College for a small group of exceptional mathematics students, including a course from our master’s thesis.
2. Teaching to students of different backgrounds: including high school students;  night class students at UMSL, many of whom were adults who had been out of school from 5 to 15 years;  classes at Vatterott College for students seeking vocational training rather than  a full education;  and full-time college students who had not interrupted their education.
3. Teaching in three distinct fields: mathematics,  physics,  computer programming.
