I am a current 6th grade teacher in California. When I “grow up” I would love to be a nomad and travel the world, though some might already consider me a nomadic teacher having taught grades Kindergarten through 6th grade in San Francisco, Goleta and Stockholm, Sweden.  Before teaching 6th grade, I was a Teacher on Special Assignment, supporting teachers’ transition to the Common Core State Standards and led many professional learning sessions about instructional practices in mathematics. I have had an interest in mathematics since before majoring in the subject at Northwestern University, and now have a passion for providing students with opportunities to engage in problem solving while appreciating the beauty and creativity in the subject. Identifying and analyzing patterns, relationships, and connecting math to the global world are daily occurrences in my classroom.  I love learning, creating, thinking, solving, playing, understanding student thinking, and traveling. Forests are my sanctuary. Laughing is my medicine.

  1. A, I talked about your critical thinking work with your students yesterday at a SB Middle School showing of the documentary “Beyond Measure”, and gave your name to a couple of people. I hope they call you so you can take them through the info you shared at the GATE Symposium 🙂
