Lisa Rombes is recently retired as an instructor and chair of the Mathematics Department at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She graduated with honors from Bowling Green State University in Ohio and Penn State University with degrees in Math Education. Her focus in school was Number Theory, and she always looks to convey to students that there is beautiful math other than that found in the Calculus sequence.
She taught teaching developmental and first-year college math for 30 years, at the middle school, high school, and community college level.
As chair, her focus was on student success, access, and quality of instruction.
An early developer and instructor of online math courses, she is passionate about student success in this environment. Online course design is a real interest: Lisa also served on the college committee working to review the quality online courses in all subject areas. She loves looking at the "student view" and helping instructors see what their students see.
