Faculty Insights: Thankam Samuel Aims to Inspire Self-Assurance in Math

MCC mathematics instructor Thankam Samuel is inspired as a teacher by her own desire to learn new things, and by a goal of helping students find their own confidence.

“I want them to develop a love for learning,” she says. “They always have to keep working and wanting to better themselves.”

Samuel speaks more about influences and mentors — giving a special nod to mathematics and natural sciences dean Michael Flesch — in the latest episode of Faculty Insights.

Faculty Insights is a series from the Metro & More team about MCC instructors and their advice for others. You can watch the full series so far here on the IDS blog or on YouTube.
