Heath David Hart
I joined the Virginia Tech faculty in 1998 after receiving my master's degree from here seven years earlier and leaving for a few years. I double-majored in both mathematics and music in college. Music is still an interest of mine, although I have no talent for it. Whether I have any talent for mathematics is left as an exercise to the reader.
I grew up in North Carolina with my mom, and a father and brother who both had disabilities. I'd like to think (and I hope it's true) that this experience has helped shape my teaching in ways that make it more accessible and inclusive. I am curious about finding ways to engage different styles of learning (visual, verbal, kinesthetic, etc.), and am a fervent advocate of open-licensed resources.
In my spare time, I collect CDs and study other languages. I have a Bacon number of 3.
