Daphne Figueroa, Ph.D.
Daphne has decades of experience in science and math education. As a community college professor, Daphne has mentored and motivated countless STEM students. Many of those had an extreme lack of confidence in their abilities in math and science, but today they enjoy successful careers in STEM related fields. She has also worked with middle and high school students, tapping into their hidden desires to achieve in math and the sciences. And, her experience includes work with wildlife groups and the American Chemical Society, as well as frequent presentations to K-12 classes and community groups.
Daphne’s approach to teaching science and math comes from her own love of those subjects, which comes through with her hands-on, real-world methods of learning. She truly believes that everyone can learn to think like a scientist and that learning math and science can be fun, enriching and rewarding, even for those who aren’t pursuing a STEM career! Daphne loves to talk to parents, students, and educators about science and making content relevant. And she will show you the fascinating connections to music, literature, and motorcycling.
