I dedicate this homepage to six teachers who changed my
life. From junior high school, Dr. Terence Garner, my 8th and 9th grade English teacher,
now retired. He and his wife Beth took me under their wing when I was a newly-arrived
refugee from Cuba and taught me that a good education can make a difference. Also
from junior high school and high school: Mr. Castaldi, Mr. Bivens and Ms. Mary Sullivan,
all Dade County School math teachers from Miami, Florida. They taught me to love
mathematics. From Barry
University, my mathematics
professor Sr. Paul James Villemure, OP. Her love and dedication for teaching and
for her students radiated through every lesson. From SUNY Cortland, where I obtained my
Master's in Reading, Dr. Larry Bell, who taught me the importance of reading in the
content area of math. These are the teachers students never forget. All my life I've tried to make a difference for my students the way they made a difference for me.
I also want to thank Professor Dani Novak of Ithaca College for being the first person to encourage me to make a web page. Also, Professor Avery Solomon, formerly of Cornell University who encouraged me to publish my problem solving collection which later became my two workbooks Math Ties. It's been many years since this homepage was online. Due to the death of my late husband and later a problem with my server, the homepage was unable to be online for about five years. Now, that I'm recently retired I want to devote more time to helping other teachers. Thanks for all the e-mails and support received from teachers all over the world who have taken the time to write and seek advice. For comments or suggestions, please write Terri Husted. I will write you back. You can also write me in Spanish.
