Meet Melonie Rasmussen
Math professor Melonie Rasmussen understands that many grown adults would rather face the zombie apocalypse than sit down with a pile of equations. Convincing them otherwise is what keeps her passionate about teaching.
“A lot of students are terrified,” she said. “Others are just too used to one teaching style.”
Melonie’s style is all about real life. She sees math in all things, from running a household to raising children to appreciating art and the natural world. By teaching her students critical thinking, she knows they’ll survive and thrive no matter what they face in the real world.
“My students know I won’t give up on them,” she said.
Take that, zombies.
