Susan Serrano, Ph. D.
Associate Professor of Mathematics

"I have found that teaching is more than just presenting lectures to students. It is also building rapport with students and demonstrating a belief in their ability to succeed. I believe in teaching students to develop their computational and analytic skills. The students need to be actively engaged in the learning process. Learning is not a participatory sport. The student and the teacher must both be engaged in an active learning environment."

Dr. Serrano was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, the oldest of 5 children. Her family is from Tampa, Florida. Her father's parents came to this country as young children from Cuba and Spain. Her mother's parents came to this country as young children from Italy. Dr. Serrano is married with 2 great children!
