I have been a member of the TCTM Board since 2013, serving as the Northwest Region Director. In this capacity, I am familiar with the workings of the board and its policies. I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics/Education at West Texas A & M University and also am certified and have experience as a 6-12th grade math/science teacher in Texas. I served as a treasurer in two local community organizations, both of which were nonprofit entities and stayed in good standing during my service. Both of these terms allowed me to create and manage budgets, keep track of donations, dues, and expenses, reconcile bank statements, and work with the IRS on maintaining non-profit status. I enjoy working with the TCTM board and membership and look forward to being able to continually serve the math teachers across Texas.
