The Power to Change
Teachers have a unique and powerful ability to create change, not only for our students but for ourselves, our teaching, and our campus culture. As a Freshmen at Humboldt State University, I had no idea I was going to major in mathematics nor would I have believed I could.  A note from a professor at the top of one Calculus test changed the course of my life. It is a great honor to now be able to play this role in the lives of my students. Each semester they help me change my classes to be more applicable, active, and inclusive. In this presentation, I will share some of the teaching philosophy, classroom projects, and interdepartmental collaborations that have transformed my classes.
