About me

My name is Lazaro Pino-Rivero

I have a bachelor of Science in Chemistry and PhD from Universidad centrals de Las Villas, in Cuba.

I am teaching Chemistry at West Coast University for almost two years.

Also I teach at Miami Dade College since 2013, and before at Universidad Central de Las Villas for more than fifteen years.

I love teaching and doing research.

West Coast University is an interesting Institution where I enjoy teaching. Preparing the future nurses is for me one of the best thing that happened to me in my five years in USA.

Technology is not my strength, so appreciate any kind of help from all of you at any time.

My objective is to offer the best of me in this new way of teaching at West Coast University.

Thanks a lot.
