Hello, my name is Lillian. I am a junior majoring in Mathematics and minoring in Education. My hope is that in a couple of years I will be a high school math teacher.  For my first year here at UWGB I had no idea that I would be pursuing Math Education.

Please feel free to visit me with any math related questions and I will try my best to explain or even ponder them with you.
