Abstract: It will be my great pleasure to share my story of what no doubt appeared to be an improbable run through a B.S. and a M.A. in mathematics, and the 32-year career teaching math at the college level which followed that. Along the way I'll call attention to pivotal points in my path where MSU math department faculty played critical roles in helping me gain traction.
