"WITC genuinely cares about the students' well-being and success, not just the top students who are potential research assistants. Going to school at WITC will help students prepare for a career and provides hands-on, practical experience rather than just theoretical "skills" like most four-year universities."
Aaron Guckeberger brings a unique perspective to math studies at WITC. In high school, Aaron worked in a machine shop, then he went on to college and earned a Bachelor of Science in nuclear engineering and a Master of Science in nuclear engineering and engineering physics. He also earned an additional undergraduate major in applied mathematics. It’s this experience that fueled his passion and deep respect for how mathematics can improve our lives. In graduate school, Aaron started teaching and found that he enjoyed it much more than doing research. He found that seeing his student’s succeed in other classes by using the concepts they learned in his class was extremely rewarding.
Aaron’s education coupled with his past experience in a more hands-on environment provides valuable insight for WITC’s students. His teaching philosophy involves showing students the utility and application of a mathematical method, which he finds to be more useful than understanding the fundamental reasons of why a method works.
In his spare time, Aaron enjoys lifting weights, fishing and playing video games.
