Our classroom environment will be one that supports your diverse perspectives and honors your identities. Names are very personal and very powerful. The name by which we choose to be called represents who we are. I recognize that calling students by their preferred name is crucial to ensuring that the classroom environment (whether in person or online) is a safe and inclusive space for learning. If you have a preferred first name that you would like me to use, or would like to share your pronouns with me, please feel free to let me know!


I would also like to take a moment to acknowledge that Mt. SAC is geographically situated on the traditional lands of the native, indigenous peoples whose land was taken from them. I ask you to join me in acknowledging their community, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations. May we strive to honor the land and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.


Please make sure to log in to your Canvas courses daily to keep up with all announcements, materials, and due dates. Canvas can be accessed through your Mt. SAC portal or at https://mtsac.instructure.com.


My office hours will be held on-campus and via Zoom sessions, email, and Canvas Inbox on Mondays, Wednesday, Thursday, and Fridays. You are welcome to contact me for appointment availability. I look forward to working with everyone, and please feel free to email me if you have any questions.


The Math and Computer Science Department is committed to helping our students achieve their math educational goals. We want you to succeed and excel in transfer-level mathematics. We recognize your potential and are here to support you! Whether you are here to obtain a degree, complete transfer requirements, or simply expand your knowledge, we will strive to provide resources that you may need along your journey.
