Susan Serrano, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Mathematics
Chair, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science

 “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.”
