Dr. Beverly Hartter received her B.S. and M.S. from Illinois State University, eventually going on to receive her Ph.D. in Mathematics Education. She works to embody the ethic behind 2 Timothy 2:15: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed…”
Her passion and diligence for the subject matter is an inspiration to her students and the colleagues that she works with.
“I love math, and I want to project that love of the subject to anybody that I can. I’ve always said, in all my years of teaching: ‘My goal is to teach you a lot about life, and if we learn a little math along the way, that’s a bonus.’”
