I have been teaching for 30 years, all in Santa Rosa, and all in Math that has always been interesting for me, and gives me a chance to solve many problems, both my own and other people's.
My family and I live in Santa Rosa, and we have transformed our city plot into an urban organic farm with a small orchard and 12 different kinds of berries. I very much enjoy being outside and try to spend as much time as possible backpacking, sea kayaking, snow camping, and exploring in general, which is probably why I commute to school by bike every day. Travels (and language learning) in Costa Rica, Switzerland, France, Mexico, England, and (Summer 2015) New Zealand keep me refreshed, growing, and give me something to look forward to each summer.
