Teaching at WPI is a great opportunity to help incoming freshmen make the transition from high school to college as well as gain the pleasure and satisfaction that higher education can bring. Further, the WPI Plan is a unique approach to education, and John brings both enthusiasm and a special perspective as one of its first graduates. He appreciates the great people the students are and assists them into making mathematics a successful part of their start. He does this in a number of ways, including an outcomes approach to teaching and a careful eye on what their future courses and projects are. As Coordinator of the Master of Mathematics for Educators program, long a part of the WPI Mathematical Sciences Department, he helps many secondary math teachers to gain a better appreciation of the depth and applicability of mathematics, as well as the effective use of technology in studying and teaching math.
