What I do
I am the Mathematics projects manager for the Center for Innovation in Engineering & Science Education (better known as CIESE), at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. This is my 17th year. Time sure flies when you're having fun!

Some of my projects
I'm currently working on some math & science Internet projects as part of my work at CIESE.

Some other things I do
I founded and am the president of CLIME (Council for Technology in Mathematics Education) - an NCTM affilliate group. Visit the CLIME website where I have lots to say (in written form). I've served on several NCTM technology committees and have served on the technology committee for the New Jersey Mathematics Teachers Association (AMTNJ).

Here is one of my articles that reflects my
A Look at Technology's Role in Professional Development of Mathematics Teachers at the Middle School Level (School Science & Mathematics, November 2000) - This article describes my vision of teacher professional development and how I try to implement it in my IMATTT (Integrating Mathematics with Technology Teacher Training) Project in Paterson, New Jersey.
