Mic Fenech is a STEM Education Ph.D. candidate and Assistant Instructor at The University of Texas at Austin. His research interests center around how students' classroom experiences influence their attitudes toward mathematics and how mathematics teachers can instill positive attitudes in their students. His dissertation study revolves around how mathematics students' classroom goals relate to their attitudes toward mathematics, as well as how those attitudes influence their views of mathematics as an academic discipline. After he graduates, he wants to continue working in academia at the university level, teaching future mathematics educators best practices and innovative methods to provide positive experiences for their students.
