Rachel Repstad, Professor of Mathematics, earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from Johnson State College in 2002, and a Master of Science in Mathematics from the University of Vermont in 2004.
Teaching math is Rachel’s passion. She enjoys learning how to integrate new technologies into her instruction to make mathematics content available anytime, anywhere, and launched “drop-in” help sessions at the Williston campus to ensure that a student in any mathematics course has the opportunity to get help when needed. Her philosophy of teaching can be summed up as follows:
Even the most trivial topic in mathematics was a new, difficult, and exciting area of study at one point in history. A successful teacher must keep this in mind, and respect the position of the student.
Rachel takes great care to teach in a style that demonstrates command of the material, demands dedication from the student, but at the same time allows the student to feel at ease in the classroom.
