Listed below is a thumbnail
sketch of my education, family, interests, and employment.
My academic background includes an A.B. in mathematics from Bryn Mawr
College, a M.A.T. in mathematics/education from Harvard University, and
an Ed.D. in computer science/mathematics/education from Temple University.
My dissertation was on the use of computers in calculus. Since achieving
my doctorate, I have continued taking additional courses/seminars each year on
such diverse subjects as multimedia, computer graphics, data communications,
programming languages, and Shakespeare. In addition, I hold networking
certifications from Novell (CNA, CNE, CNI), Microsoft (MCP, MCSE), and
My interests include family, travel, games, and community service. I have
driven across the United States, bicycled through Europe, cruised the
Mediterranean, flown to Alaska, Japan, Hawaii, Australia, China (pictures
of Spring '00 trip are posted at
www.brynmawr.edu/Alumnae/Travel/China/Chinph1.htm ). I love
playing card games, especially bridge and blackjack. I have served
as church Elder & Deacon, as den leader, as Science Fair judge, Project
Upward Bound Counselor, etc. Each evening I walk for an hour with
my friend. I love to laugh, to teach, and to learn.
I have been teaching computer science and mathematics at MCCC for over
twenty-five years. Before teaching at MCCC, I taught at Arcadia
University, Cabrini College, University of Pennsylvania, Harvard University,
and several high schools in Massachusetts; I also worked as a statistical
clerk, computer programmer, and consultant. Almost every year I
teach a new course. During this past year, I have been
working on an HP Grant entitled "Problem Solving Using Mobile Teams and
Digital Ink". The field of computer science attracts
me because of its frequent changes and societal importance.
