LecturerMathematics and Statistics


I received my Master of Science and Bachelor of Science degrees in Pure Mathematics at Lamar University in 1990 and 1988, respectively.

While working toward my Master of Science degree, I was a Mathematics Instructor at Lamar University, Department of Technical Arts. There I taught Trigonometry and tutor students all level of Mathematics that are offered by the department. I enjoy teaching and am always learning more creative ways to make students understand and interest in the subject matter. I believe that to be a successful teacher, one has to love teaching, enjoy helping students, motivate their critical thinking and show them how to apply course material to problem-solving and decisions.
