Welcome! I am in my thirteenth year as a faculty member in the Mathematics Department at HCC on the Dale Mabry Campus.
For Fall 2016, I am teaching two courses on campus: Trigonometry (MAC 1114) and Calculus 2 (MAC 2312), and I am teaching two courses online: Precalculus Algebra (MAC 1140) and Calculus 1 (MAC 2311). You can view previous semesters' syllabi through the link in the left navigation menu.
All course materials (formula sheets, class notes, class lecture videos, etc.) for students who are enrolled in my courses can be accessed through MyHCC: http://hcc.instructure.com
Saving animals is very important to me. My husband and I have two special-needs dogs. Molly is a a shih tzu who had to have one eye removed due to painful glaucoma. Rudy is a Yorkie mix who is mostly deaf and has limited sight in one eye. We have also rescued two cats, Lila and Squirrel.
My husband and I continue to do our part to help control the cat population in our area by trapping, neutering/spaying, vaccinating, and releasing (known as TNVR) stray cats. We have TNVR'd more than 45 cats in our neighborhood over the past 5 years.
My husband and I both volunteer with Lost Angels Animal Rescue. All of our dogs were adopted from Lost Angels, and I hope the next time you are considering getting a pet, you will RESCUE one! If you would like more information about our rescue group, please visit www.lostangelsanimalrescue.org.
When getting a pet, please consider adopting from a shelter or animal rescue organization. And have your pet spayed or neutered (it extends their lives up to 3 years)! Keep in mind:
Every day in the US, 10,000 people are born but 70,000 puppies and kittens are born.
Over 50% of dogs and 70% of cats that go to shelters get euthanized.
Approximately 25% of animals in shelters are purebreds.
Between 6 and 8 million animals per year are euthanized in the U.S.
