Luke Walsh, Catawba Valley CC, North Carolina

Luke Walsh graduated from Indiana University in 2000 and then began teaching 8th grade mathematics in North Carolina. After five years in the public education system, he took a break to hike the Appalachian Trail. In 2007, Luke earned a masters in mathematics from Appalachian State University, and since then he has been a full-time mathematics instructor at Catawba Valley CC.  Luke loves to collaborate with other teachers, to eat BBQ and drink craft beer, to create graphs on Desmos, to spend time outdoors, and to go on family road trips. 


Anurag Katyal, Palm Beach State College, Florida

Anurag Katyal is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Palm Beach State College. He enjoys working with students as they engage in learning tasks that help them make sense of mathematics. Learning alongside and in partnership with his students is one of the best parts of his work as a teacher. Outside of teaching, Anurag enjoys photography, listening to music and walking on the beach at night.



Rhea Becke, Clark College, Vancouver, Washington

Rhea Becke is a Transitional Studies Math Instructor.  She teaches developmental and high school equivalency math in at Clark College in Vancouver, WA.  She received her MAT from the University of Alaska Southeast and has taught in the K-12 system and at the community college.  Her interests are in contextualizing curriculum and developing study skills in the math classroom. She enjoys family, gardening, hiking and traveling.



Vinodh Chellamuthu, Dixie State University, Utah

Vinodh Chellamuthu is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Dixie State University. He received his Ph.D. Degree in Mathematics from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. His research interest is in the area of Mathematical Biology. More specifically, developing mathematical models to better understand and predict the spread of diseases.  When it comes to teaching, he is constantly looking to improve the student's classroom experience with non-traditional math pedagogy. Interacting with students and teaching them life skills through mathematics is something that brings him great joy.



Brooks Ziegler, Pellissippi State CC, Knoxville, Tennessee

Brooks Ziegler is an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Pellissippi State Community College where he teaches a wide range of introductory and upper-level courses. He earned a BS and MS in Pure Mathematics from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. His research interests are in the areas of Mathematical Physics, Algebraic Coding Theory, and Theoretical Cryptography. His areas of interest in mathematics education are the integration and proper uses of technology in the classroom, and how student attitudes towards mathematical utility changes success in mathematical learning.



Wendy Johnson, Wake Tech CC, North Carolina

Wendy Johnson is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Wake Tech Community College. She earned a BS in Mathematics Education from West Chester University and taught high school for 2 years before accepting a teaching assistantship at North Carolina State University to earn a MS in Applied Mathematics. After working as a software support specialist for Misys Healthcare Systems (now Allscripts) two years, she returned to teaching, first at Meredith College and now at Wake Tech CC for the past 11 years. Her interests are fostering student confidence and competence in mathematics through group interactions. Hobbies include time with family, friends, band, and soccer team.
