I am a bit of a jill-of-all-trades. You will find me cutting hair, or tiling a basement floor, or harvesting a crop of potatoes. But my day job, the job that helps to pay the bills, is teaching Computing Science and Mathematics. I love meeting a student at whatever level they are at, and watching them acquire new knowledge about my field and life in general.
Special moments: When a student realizes something in computing is no longer "magic".
When my children spoke had their first smile, gave their first hug, and spoke their first words.
When a student conquers a fear (e.g. of Math or of Computing or of Speaking in front of other students).
Spending time with my family or my friends, hiking, biking, walking, being in nature.
