Nancy Cobb – Chair of the Mathematics Department
Nancy holds a BSEd in Secondary Mathematics from the University of Georgia and a MA in Education (focus in secondary mathematics,) from Piedmont College.
Teaching is my God-given talent and mathematics happens to be the field that intrigues my mind. I joined the Emmanuel College Mathematics Department in 2015 as a Mathematics Instructor with a goal to share my love of God and of mathematics with my students. My path to Emmanuel College has included various career adventures. I taught high school mathematics in Georgia’s public schools for 10 years. Love for mathematics and its application within technology allowed me the opportunity to be a corporate computer applications trainer, then a financial analyst at Westinghouse Savannah River Nuclear Site in Aiken, South Carolina. By far, being a stay-at-home mom until our daughter began middle school was the favorite variable in my career equation. During this period, I also worked part time as the office manager for Pruitt Funeral Home in Royston, Georgia. My husband, Dennis, and I live in Hartwell, Georgia. We have one daughter, Meagan, who is currently working on her MA in Hispanic Studies at the University of Georgia. We are members of Hartwell First Baptist Church. My hobbies include playing the piano, fly fishing, whitewater rafting, hiking, and reading.
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; it if is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.” Romans 12:6-8 (NIV)
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)
