Marlene Naquin

Instructor, Department of Mathematics

Having taught various grade levels before beginning at The University of Southern Mississippi-Gulf Coast, I have a strong interest in Mathematics education and teacher preparation for grades PK-12. The application of standards, the use of manipulatives and technology in the classroom are are always evolving and allow for continuing research into the study of mathematics education. As education at the university level itself evolves, the exploration of online learning is an added area of opportunity and research. I also have a strong interest in self-perception and learning differences and how these influence mathematics and science learning.
On a personal note, photography, beachcombing and kayaking are ways to relax. These also allow me to share insights with my students on how one can see mathematics in the everyday simple things in life.
