Diana Siberio-Perez

In 2009 I had the privilege of joining Empire State College as a faculty member of the Hudson Valley Region and the Science, Math and Technology Division. Within the SMT Division, I am also a member of both the Math and the Natural Sciences departments. Physically, I am located in the Newburgh office and work with students both locally and at a distance. As an instructor, I offer courses in Mathematics, Chemistry and Introductory General Science. As a mentor, during my tenure at ESC, I have enjoyed working with students from all areas of study in the development of their degree programs. Teaching and mentoring others is one of my passions, which is why being part of Empire State College has been a great opportunity and a true privilege.
