Personal History
 

I was raised on a farm in Joliet, Montana . It is a small town about 35 miles from Billings.

At Joliet High School, I avidly played sports and kept active with the math team and student government. I spent summers working on local farms to make money for college.

I started college at Montana Tech in Butte to be an engineer but decided it really was not for me. I transferred to MSU-B to become a math teacher and graduated in December 2000 with my Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Math Education.

OK so now you know I have always been a "math nerd," a little bit about me, and my sense of humor, I can show you some of the sentiments of most of my students by the end of math classes.
