Introduction

I have been a member of the College of Education faculty since the fall of 2001. I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematics and cultural studies. I am a former elementary school teacher, and have lived and taught overseas. I am a life-long learner enjoying new challenges and goals. I have served in administrative and governance positions at Fredonia, (Senate Chair, 2008-2009, Department Chair, 2008-2011). I am currently Program Coordinator for the C & I Graduate Program. I enjoy balancing my teaching, service and scholarly activities and have published three single-authored books,  over a dozen single-authored refereed articles, various shared articles with colleagues and presented at international conferences in Budapest, Granada, Oxford, Montreal, Vancouver, and the U.S. in the past thirteen years at Fredonia.


Scholarly/Teaching Interests

  • I teach undergraduate site-based cultural and linguistic diversity courses, mathematics methods courses, graduate cultural studies, activity-oriented mathematics and research methods.
