Jonathan S Summer
Adjunct Instructor I
Department of STEM Education
Worldwide College of Arts & Sciences
My name is Jonathan Summer. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I currently teach in the area. I have been at this job for over six years and love it. I love teaching and watching students learn.
I did my undergraduate studies at The University of Pittsburgh, where I earned a BS in Mathematics. After a lot of hard work, I earned my bachelor’s in 2001. After earning my B.S., I felt an obligation to go on for my Master’s.
In 2001, I hopped on a plane and began my Master’s. I earned my degree at The University of Nevada Las Vegas(UNLV). I had a great time there. I met plenty of new people and also became a teacher. As a part of my stipend, I was given the opportunity to teach a couple of math courses each semester. This was my first exposure to teaching and obviously not my last. I enjoyed every moment of it. It gave me a chance to meet some great students, but also a chance to pass on some great information along the way.
In the spring of 2005, I earned my Master’s Degree in Mathematics. The hardest thing along the way was finishing my thesis, which took a great amount of time and detail.
In the fall of 2005 I entered a PhD program in Mathematics at UNLV. During that year I applied for and later was given a job in Pittsburgh.
Then in the fall of 2006, I began teaching full time in Pittsburgh. I have been here ever since and am very happy with my decision.
I am now married to a wonderful woman and have a eighteen month boy named Connor, who keeps me busy and young.
I enjoy exercising and reading in my free time.
