About the Instructor
I'm on a mission to make math irresistible for all.
I have always had an affinity for math. Powered by my love of math, I earned a Ph.D. in Physics in 1999 which led to a decade in R&D at Intel. In 2008, I quit my job and founded Math Plus Academy, an after-school STEM enrichment program for kids from ages 5 – 14.
I'm also proud to be a founding member of The Global Math Project, a non-profit that helps spread the joy of mathematics to classrooms around the world. In addition, I also help lead a Math Teacher Circle and host the Julia Robinson Math Festival in Columbus, Ohio.
Over the last several years, I have worked with numerous school districts throughout the country to help math teachers make school math irresistible. I've also had the privilege to present sessions on Productive Struggle, Curiosity and Surprise and more at numerous conferences including NCTM Annual, NCSM Annual, and the National Math Festival.
