Susan Durst loves working with talented math kids.

A Bay Area native, Susan is excited to be back in San Francisco teaching at Proof School.

Susan did her graduate work at Rutgers University, studying ring theory and combinatorics. For the past three years she has been a Teaching Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Arizona, where she has had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of classes, and also to mentor young teachers through the Undergraduate Teaching Assistant Program.

For the past nine summers, Susan has taught classes at Canada/USA Mathcamp, first as a graduate student teacher and mentor, and more recently as a faculty member and camp co-director. She loves working with talented young mathematicians, and is thrilled to have the opportunity to do so full-time as a Proof School faculty member.
