I have been a professor of mathematics education at the University of Wyoming since 2012 and in higher education since 1997. I served as principal investigator on grants funded by federal agencies, including the U.S. Dept. of Education and the National Science Foundation ($7 million dollars). One of my recent grants focused on robotics and game design. Earlier in my career, I was a K-8 science/mathematics teacher for 16 years. I am also an ordained elder at Allen Chapel AME Church in Cheyenne.
