Academic Coordinator of the MACSME program
I've spent most of my entire life in and around Berkeley schools: I grew up in Berkeley and attended Berkeley Public Schools, got my credential and masters from MACSME at Cal, taught math in BUSD middle schools for 14 years, and am now the Academic Coordinator of the MACSME program. I live in Berkeley with my wife Paami, and my children Axel, 10 yrs, and Farah, 7 yrs, attend Malcolm X elementary in Berkeley.
I'm interested in how teachers develop broad philosophies and specific strategies for supporting student sense making in mathematics. ?
