Mathematics Grads in the News

The Baltimore Sun: "I'm real about what's going on," Harford's top teacher says. 

Profile of Laura Potter '01, who graduated from NDMU with a major in Mathematics and a minor in Physics. Laura was named Harford County Teacher of the Year for 2015-2016.

Laura told the Sun that being a math teacher is a dream come true.

"I really loved my math classes that I was in, so I chose to change my major to math," she said. "I'm really happy that I did, because math always came easy for me growing up, and I always would help my brother and my stepsister with their math homework."

"I think I always wanted to be a teacher and I don't know why," Potter said. "I enjoy helping people. One of my other career choices when I was little was a veterinarian."
