Teaching of mathematics
It is my philosophy that every aspect of one's life is interconnected to make the whole human being. As professional teachers, we can't put religion on the shelf and take it down when needed. Even though we may not be able to talk about religion in the public schools, we can certainly model for students, teachers and administrators what a Christian leader looks like by articulating the concept within the classroom.
Within the field of mathematics, I believe that we see God in the structure of the world as described by mathematics. How can we not believe in God when we explore the order that created it? We also can look at infinity in mathematics and think about the infinite nature of God.
I grew up in Chicago and moved to Tidewater after I married a Navy officer. I love reading, listening to music and gardening. I am a Chesapeake Master Gardener and volunteer with the Gardening Helpline. At church I am a song leader for my Sunday School class, a liturgist and outreach coordinator.
