Teaching Schedule


I graduated Richland Community College with an A.S. degree with a Mathematics concentration. I then went to Eastern Illinois University where I received a B.A. in Mathematics with the Teacher Certification option. I joined the R.C.C. staff immediately after receiving my B.A. as the Study Assistance Center Coordinator and Adjunct Mathematics Faculty. I held both jobs for three years and continued my education at Sangamon State University. I became a conditional full-time Mathematics Instructor in August 1992 pending the completion of my Master's degree. I received my M.A. in Mathematical Sciences from Sangamon State University in May 1993

I am helping coordinate the Internet connection at Richland. Thanks go to Sandy Harmison and Paul Krekel for their great assistance in this monumental task.

I serve on several committees.


I attend the West Decatur Church of God (4500 W. Main), where I play the piano.

I run a three-line computer bulletin board system.

I perform statistical consulting to health-care organizations in Central and Southern Illinois.
