• MathematicsTeaching math is a second career for me.  I started my working life as an engineer.  I worked for the Philadelphia Electric Company for many years before deciding to make a change.  I had many great experiences as an engineer, including working at Limerick Nuclear Generating Station in Pottstown, PA.  I think having a background in engineering helps me to be a better math teacher because I know first hand that  mathematics is used daily in the "real world".
