Victoria Bampoh

Faculty in Chemistry
BS, MPhil, University of Cape Coast; MS, PhD, Syracuse University.      
Dr. Victoria Bampoh grew up in Ghana but in 2006, she moved to America with a scholarship to pursue a PhD program in chemistry at Syracuse University, New York. She completed her doctoral degree in 2012 and was employed as a lecturer at the University of Minnesota, Rochester. At the University of Minnesota, she was involved in Innovative Teaching and Learning research for four years and then moved to Maryland in 2016. She taught chemistry at Bard High School Early College, in Baltimore, from August 2016 to June 2020. Besides teaching, she loves gardening, traveling, playing the piano and singing Christian songs with her husband, Bismark, and son, Benard, every Sunday at church.

Maya Cyrus

Faculty in Mathematics
BS, Howard University; MSEd, University of Pennsylvania.     
I was born in Washington, DC to two engineers, who met while students at Howard University. I graduated as the valedictorian of my class from Archbishop Carroll High School in 2006. Following in my parents’ footsteps, I attended Howard University, majoring in Mathematics and minoring in Music. In 2010, I was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa society, earned my license to teach Math in DC, and graduated summa cum laude from Howard.

Hany Eldeib

Faculty in Mathematics
BS, MS, Cairo University, Egypt; MS, PhD, University of Virginia.    
Dr. Hany has extensive experience in teaching Mathematics, Engineering, and Information Technology courses at university and high school levels. He taught at a number of universities in the Washington, D.C. areas including George Mason University and the University of the District of Columbia. He is a veteran of the satellite communications industry and is an advocate of STEM education for youth.

Roseanna Gossmann

Faculty in Mathematics
BA, Mills College; MS, PhD, Tulane University.      
Originally hailing from rural northern California, Roseanna completed her undergraduate studies in Mathematics and Biology with a special emphasis on Education at Humboldt State University and Mills College. She is passionate about math education and educational access, and has a background working with students from prekindergarten through college in extracurricular, event, and in-school settings. She has spent more than a decade learning and teaching math, and has also dabbled in teaching biology, theater, and other subjects. Roseanna earned her PhD in Mathematics from Tulane University in New Orleans in 2018. Her research interests include computational biofluid dynamics, modeling elastic bodies and fluid-elastic interactions, deformation of collapsible tubes, stokes flow, and female reproductive health, as well as mathematical biology and computational mathematics more generally. She applied these in her doctoral research exploring the elastohydrodynamics of a simplified human birth model. When she isn’t teaching and math-ing, Roseanna enjoys spending time with her husband and their small gaggle of kids and pets, reading, writing, playing music, and being mediocre at crossword puzzles.

Kim Huynh

Faculty in Chemistry
BS, Western Michigan University; PhD, University of Maryland.      
Dr. Kim Huynh received her Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Maryland (UMD) in College Park. She previously taught Chemistry courses at UMD and Carleton College. Dr Huynh’s passion for teaching is rooted in her desire to help more students successfully complete science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) degrees, which notoriously have a high drop-out/failure rate. She strives to teach students how to understand and appreciate the role of chemistry in their lives by not only teaching the material, but explaining why students should care about the material being taught. By drawing connections to the familiar and concrete through real world examples, Dr. Huynh shows students how the material is relevant to them. For over a decade, Dr. Huynh has taught a variety of students from kindergarten to graduate students in a wide range of settings. Outside the traditional classroom, Dr. Huynh enjoys outreach teaching opportunities (e.g. at-risk afterschool programs and STEM awareness events) because she loves to see students of all ages get excited and engaged in chemistry!

Gabriel Morden-Snipper

Faculty in Mathematics
BA, Oberlin College; MA, Hunter College.     
Gabriel Morden-Snipper, a DMV native, has taught at independent and public schools in Brooklyn, NY and Washington, DC for ten years. Prior to joining the founding faculty at Bard DC, he taught at Columbia Heights Educational Campus (CHEC). Since 2018, he has provided professional development for other DC-area teachers as a Math for America Master Teacher. He spends as much of his spare time as possible outdoors with his family. He earned his BA in Politics from Oberlin College and MA in Adolescent Mathematics Education from CUNY Hunter College.
