Rita Eisele Associate Professor New Mexico State University - Alamogordo
Knowing that I can play a role in helping students achieve their educational goals motivates me to strive for excellence. I am concerned that many students at the college level have math anxiety. This has inspired me to improve my teaching methods to help all students learn mathematics. I am energized by the fact that helping a student succeed in math will have a lasting effect on that person’s life. The success of my students is what keeps me motivated to be the best teacher that I can be.
