How do we as Christian educators instill in students an appreciation for the inherent goodness of math? This question is of vital importance as many students (and, let’s be honest, some teachers) experience mathematics as confusing, stressful and generally contrary to anything considered good.
I graduated from Texas A&M in 2005 with a B.S. in mathematics and I completed a Th.M. in Historical Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary in 2010. For the past two years I have taught geometry and AP Statistics at Regents School of Austin while working part-time on a Ph.D. in Math Education at Texas State University. In 2012 I was honored as one of five finalists in the state of Texas for the HEB Excellence in Education Award. In my spare time I run the website www.GodandMath.com which is devoted to the integration of mathematics and Christian faith. I have been married to my wife Laura for seven years, we have a two-year-old son named Caleb, and we are expecting our second child in October.
