I have always enjoyed solving mathematical problems. When I was a little girl, I liked to solve mathematical puzzles. In high school I joined a math club and was constantly asking my teacher for new problems to solve. In college and graduate school, I have discovered a beauty of mathematics beyond just solving problems. I started teaching mathematics in 1994, my final year as a student at St. Petersburg State University. Since then, I have taught a broad variety of undergraduate mathematics courses for both mathematics majors and non-mathematics majors, as well as graduate mathematics courses. Teaching mathematics fills me with joy; seeing the students being interested in mathematics, watching the smiles on their faces when a problem is solved, laughing with them, learning from them, nourishing their success, and standing by them at graduation provides me with regular reminders of how happy I am to have found a profession I find so rewarding.
What I Love About Emmanuel:
I am glad to teach at a College that embraces moral values and teaches students to make ethical decision throughout their lives.
