#### Why Cedar Crest?

“The class sizes are small so I'm able to get to really know my students. This is especially true of the math majors/minors where I might have a student for several classes. I also enjoy teaching women mathematics. Women are underrepresented in math and it makes me feel good to know I'm doing something to help create female mathematicians.”

#### Professional Advice

Mathematics builds upon itself so it is imperative that you keep up with what is being taught. If you are confused about something don't wait to ask for help.

#### Inspiration

“The beauty and challenge of mathematics is what inspires me. There are only a few things in life I find more enjoyable than solving a problem that I once thought was impossible. In addition, working with students that share a love of mathematics inspires me.”

Becoming a Teacher

“I was a math tutor (employed by my university) for three years as an undergraduate. It was one of the best jobs I ever had. I knew then that I wanted to teach college level students full time.”
