**About Me:**I am a math education professor at GVSU; I earned my PhD in Mathematics Education at Montana State University, and have worked as a faculty member since 2006.

Contact me, follow me on Twitter, or read my blog.

**Professional Interests:**My current professional interests are in the following areas:

- Assessment best practices, including feedback and formative assessment
- PK12 statistics education
- Standards-based grading and growth mindset
- Cognitive Coaching* for pre-service teacher development

*certified: 2013-present

- educational technology

**Teaching:**I generally teach the following courses as part of my normal teaching load:

- student teaching field experience (with seminar)
- mathematics methods (with "teacher assisting")
- mathematics for elementary teachers
- teaching math in the middle grades
- probability and statistics for elementary teachers

- geometry for elementary teachers
- problem solving for elementary teachers
- high school algebra
- intermediate algebra
- college algebra
- precalculus/trigonometry
- calculus I, II, and III
- modern geometry
- history of mathematics
- introductory statistics
- the language of mathematics
- math for liberal arts

**Service:**Assessment has been a focus for much of my recent service work at the university, including:

- contributing to our math education program accreditation reports (NCTM/CAEP, 2015-16)
- serving on the GVSU University Assessment Committee (2013-present)
- serving on my department's assessment committee (2012-present)
