Zachary Youmans' Book Release
Teaching Mathematics at a Technical College out now
BRIGHT ALUM ZACHARY YOUMANS TO RELEASE BOOK ON NOVEMBER 26
Teaching Mathematics at a Technical College is Zachary Youmans first book to be published after graduating from the University of Northern Iowa in 2018, and from Utah State University in 2020.
“I am very thankful for the Bright Foundation which helped provide stepping stones for my future career,” Youmans said.
Youmans, a Bright Scholar, earned both his bachelor’s and master’s in mathematics before starting his career at Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) in January 2021. After six months he was promoted to Program Chair of the Mathematics department, a position where he oversees nine full-time math instructors and around 1700 – 1800 students a semester.
This position gave him the experience he used to write his first book which provides content on what a technical college is, how to best teach mathematics at one, and advice to students who are enrolled in courses at technical colleges.
“In 2014 when I first started at UNI, I had no idea I would have lived in Iowa, Utah, and now Georgia. The Bright Foundation provided me with this opportunity by going to school, debt-free,” Youmans said.
Youmans is now pursuing an Ed.D in Higher Education Administration at Bradley University to hopefully become a leader at a two-year college afterwards. He wants to show the world his passion for the value of two-year colleges, like CGTC, and how they are great affordable options for students.
Teaching Mathematics at a Technical College by Zachary Youmans is available for purchase now.
