Dr. Dan Bagnoni, assistant professor of mathematics, was “in total shock” when it was announced that the student body chose him as 2016 Outstanding Teacher of the Year.
“I am honored and humbled,” he said. “There are so many incredible and amazing professors at Lynn deserving of this award. To be chosen by the student body is amazing.”
Bagnoni uses humor, singing and current events to spark interest and make lessons engaging.
“Dan begins every class with music and is known as one of the funniest faculty members here at Lynn,” said Dr. Gregg Cox, vice president for academic affairs. “While his courses can be quite demanding, he seems to have the ability to make math fun.”
“Someone once said, ‘Students don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.’ I think the students know that I care,” said Bagnoni, who just completed his 10th year as a full-time Lynn professor.
