I began teaching mathematics at Walla Walla Community College in 1989 and I am still there because I love working with our students. My experience with Mathematica began long, long ago with v2, and has become rather extensive over the decades. I use Mathematica in my teaching and writing, I teach others how to use Mathematica, and I code in Mathematica to create tools and publish eTexts. All of the eTexts listed below have been written in Mathematica. Also, all of the eTexts have been published using Mathematica with a library of code I have developed over the years. Formally for CDF software and now for the Wolfram Cloud.
