Pre-Engineering Advisor
Associate Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science

I teach mathematics and computer science courses at Millsaps College. These courses are objective and useful; I just love teaching them! Carl Friedrich Gauss once said, “Mathematics is the queen of the sciences.” I completely agree with him! My happiest moments are when students who thought they could not understand mathematics inform me that they “can do math” and that mathematics becomes less difficult after they take the class. As a teacher, I believe that students should solve problems in the way that they think is right and should be independent thinkers.
