  • About me

    I am interested in mathematics and methods for teaching it. I studied Mathematics Education at the University of Kansas, and upon completion of my degree stayed as a graduate student in higher mathematics. In my third year, I decided to take a year abroad at the University of Bonn, in Germany. I felt instantly at home, so when presented with an opportunity to return to complete my Masters there, I did. I fell in love with Set Theory, in particular large cardinal numbers and the effects they have on the very small properties of the real number system. Besides studying, I am also a dedicated teacher, most recently teaching at internationally minded schools in Germany and Spain. Despite already having an extensive knowledge of Mathematics, I continue to learn new things from my students, as I give them the freedom to explore topics to their hearts' content.
