Nancy Woller

Liberal Arts Teaching Chair M.A., Brigham Young University

Nancy Woller is currently serving as the Chair for Waterford’s Mathematics Department and holds the Heuston Endowed Chair for Teaching. Nancy has always viewed herself as a teacher. At the age of 17, Nancy was recruited to substitute for her math teacher in her old high school.  There was no looking back and from that point on, teaching and education have been her passion. She came to Waterford over 20 years ago after teaching in Oregon, California, New York and Utah and has experience teaching at all levels from elementary to secondary to university. Nancy holds a BS in Psychology and an MA in Mathematics, both from Brigham Young University and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership and Policy at the University of Utah. Nancy has four children (all Waterford alumni) and enjoys the rare times when all can gather. She loves to travel and has been known to unexpectedly run into Waterford alumni in places as far afield as Queenstown, New Zealand, a street corner of New York City, an airport in Manchester, England, and even in an In-and-Out Burger in Las Vegas. Besides teaching and spending time with her family, her favorite thing to do is to listen to people’s stories.
