Ana Parra Lombard

Department: Mathematics & Statistics

A native New Mexican and first-generation college graduate, Ana Parra Lombard has been working in education for over 20 years. She has been​ teaching Math at UNM for the past 6 years and before that taught pre-K through 7th grade. “Teaching fosters and guides students through a holistic development. The self, academics, and community are the three components of the holistic learning process in higher education. The result of holistic teaching creates a confidant and self-motivated student who realizes the purpose of mathematics and number theory to apply it in everyday life. My favorite part of teaching is when I see my students discover and develop their superpowers for learning Math.” -Ana
