A Little More 

Carolyn Pratt describes her teaching style like this: She doesn’t just teach math. She teaches individuals math. That means she takes the time to get to know her students as people first and then teaches them the course material in a way that meets their needs. 

Since 2021, Pratt has taught both math and Achieving College and Career Advancement courses at AACC, but she’s taught math for longer than that. While in graduate school, she was part of a research team that studied spatial skill development and how it impacts a student’s ability to learn math. She considers teaching math to be her life’s passion. 

“I am in awe of my students on a daily basis,” she said. “Learning is not easy on its own, and then to add all of life's trials on top of it makes going to school tough. But the Riverhawks show up no matter what, ready and wanting to learn. I love my students! I love seeing their growth and watching those Riverhawks spread their wings and soar.” 

Pratt is a sixth-generation Nevadan who loves her home state, although she’s developed a love for the east coast too. She’s passionate about her alma mater, the University of Nevada, Reno. When she's not teaching, Pratt can be found hanging out with her husband, daughter, their two dogs, and rabbit. 


We’re happy to help.
