David Valdivia Jr., Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Mathematics

I believe that a great teacher is one that makes students realize their potential to learn on their own and take charge of their own learning experience.”

Dr. Valdivia received a B.S. in Mathematics from Salisbury University in Maryland in 2006, started graduate school in the same year at Florida State University, and graduated with a Ph. D. in mathematics in December 2011.
