Describe one of your biggest achievements as a Brookdale faculty member:
My most significant contribution to the department and college has been as founder and co-advisor of the Brookdale Math Club from 2008 – 2015. The club’s aim is to promote the appreciation and pursuit of mathematics, and it provides students with opportunities to participate in research and national programs. I also received Brookdale’s 2015 Outstanding Colleague Award.
What would you say is your most memorable moment – or moments – as a member of the Brookdale community?
My most memorable and rewarding moment as an educator was witnessing the graduation of one of my students in May 2015. This student showed such remarkable perseverance and succeeded in becoming a first-generation college graduate.
Would you recommend that students take a class in your department?
I would definitely recommend the Brookdale Mathematics Department to students. Its outstanding reputation is based on exceptional student support, innovation, and commitment to student success.
