With around 100 students entering his classroom each day, Wyatt O'Connor '19 realizes the impact he can have beyond just teaching the numbers.

Seeing growth in his students is most important to O'Connor.

“Since math isn’t most people’s cup of tea, it can be difficult for students, but every day I get to see the students learn. I love seeing it ‘click’ when they really get something.”
