What Matters Most to BCC Math Professor Rony Gouraige?
“My students. I want them to attain their goals in life. I want them to develop as human beings and critical thinkers. I want them to love mathematics. I want them to understand that with effort and perseverance, one can accomplish many things, both great and small. Most important, I want them to never give up, no matter how daunting the challenge or insurmountable the odds.”
