My biographical information

I am currently a third year math teacher at George Junior Republic UFSD. I teach juvenile delinquents at a residential facility grades 7-12. We use Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) to help maintain a safe school environment, emotionally and physically. I went to Le Moyne College and graduated with my BA in Mathematics with a concentration in Adolescent and Special Education. I hold my initial teaching certification in Adolescent Mathematics Education grades 7-12. I am the chair of the Dryden Teachers' Center. This center allows teachers to hold workshops for each other and to earn CTLE credit. I am also the Union Treasurer for my school district.

My personal information

I love being outdoors. I enjoy snowmobiling, boating, and hiking. I am currently experimenting with hobby sheep farming.

About user pages

The personal page offers mini-course builders an opportunity to practice using the Wiki Editor. The portfolio page is where mini-course builders document their design work. And finally the course pages will hold the learning objects/content/activities to be used by your "students." Each mini-course is likely to have 4 or more pages - an intro and 3 or more "units" or "lessons."
