I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from Cal Poly Pomona in 1997. I earned a Master’s Degree in Mathematics from UC Riverside in 1998.
I have been a professor at Mt. San Antonio College since 2001. I started as an adjunct
professor and was hired as a full-time professor in 2002. I have always enjoyed teaching
mathematics. My first experience with teaching math was while I was a student at
Cal Poly Pomona. I was a tutor for the Educational Opportunity Program from 1993-1997.
I was a Teaching Assistant and Lecturer at UC Riverside from 1998-2002. From the
first student I tutored to the room full of students in my classes, I have thoroughly
enjoyed teaching a subject that I find fascinating. Over the years, I have learned
that it is not only important to show how to do math, but that it is very important
to show why math works the way it does.
I have been Chair of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department since June 2016.
