Andrew Lazar

Hello! A little bit about me. I earned my Master of Science in Applied Mathematics from University of California, Merced in May 2021. Before graduate school, I started my undergraduate journey at Modesto Junior College in 2015 before transferring to CSU Stanislaus in 2017. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics at CSU Stanislaus in May 2019. In the community college my passion for teaching mathematics was fostered. I hope to impart a love for mathematics amongst my students! 

Outside of school, I am an avid cook, I love to try new recipes. I also enjoy listening to music, podcasts, reading, watching a good show, and being with my family/friends! I also love a great cup of coffee!
