I tell my students that there are no rules in math, save one: *Don't Lie*.

I watch for lies in my students **mathematical communication**, training them to identify mistakes and assumptions in both their classmates' arguments and their own.

I believe **questions are as valuable as answers**; I aim to design lessons which allow students to craft intelligent inquiries as often as they uncover information.

I teach with an **inquiry-driven** approach, incorporating **technology** as a daily experience to develop and support conceptual understanding.

I have facilitated **professional development** sessions for my coworkers and members of my alumni network. My session design is similar to my lesson design: **differentiated** to meet attendees where they are, and driven by **audience participation**.

I believe in **freely sharing** lesson materials. I hope to eventually link to full lessons and curriculum guides, but for now my virtual filing cabinet mostly holds Desmos and GeoGebra activities. You can find more of my thoughts on teaching at my blog: LimSoup.
