I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Guttman Community College, the first new community college at CUNY in over 40 years. I completed my PhD at The George Washington University in 2010 under the direction of William Schmitt, and have focused since then on teaching and pedagogy at the community college level.
Guttman’s interdisciplinary model means that I’ve had opportunities to dabble in service-learning, quantitative reasoning, and various constructivist pedagogies. I’ve engaged students in forum theatre, organized a panel discussion on gentrification as part of our City Seminar course, and guided my statistics class through a scientific study of Brooklyn Rescue Mission’s farmer’s market. More recently, I’ve been developing a hybrid Precalculus course inspired by cMOOCs and the edupunk ethos. I’m really thankful I get to teach in such an exciting, collaborative environment with such wonderful, engaging students.
