Dr. Rissler taught mathematics at Frostburg State University for 30 years. Not only was he a dedicated classroom professor, but his office was always open to students and he allocated as much time as a student needed to understand a concept or assignment. He was a student advisor who provided sound scholastic counseling to his advisees. In addition, he was a faculty advisor to Sigma Zeta, a national honorary science and mathematics society and to its predecessor, Xi Xi.
