Hello! I am Nivedita Das and SY 2021-22 will be my first year of teaching 8th grade math at Metz. I am very excited to join the Mustang community. I am originally from India and started my academic career in my home country in civil engineering. I came to the US as a graduate student and earned a doctorate degree in engineering from University of South Florida. I worked few years in the industry before my passion for mathematics brought me to teaching. Before coming to Metz, I taught algebra for several years at Prince George’s Community College in Maryland.
I love to work with my students, and I feel quite exhilarated when I am able to inspire young minds to appreciate the beauty of mathematics. I truly believe that mathematics is the language of the universe through which we explore and understand the patterns and structure of the nature around us. I like to teach math as a tool to solve practical problems so that students can relate seemingly abstract concepts to real-world situations.
I look forward to getting to know you and working with you to make it a rewarding academic year for all of us.
