This bilingual educator has over 30 years of classroom experience. She has led teacher collaborations via distance learning, including piloting a coaching/co-teaching model between the School of Math and Science and rural districts in NC lacking qualified teachers for high level math courses. Her focus on mathematical modeling inspired us on a past teacher trip in Ecuador.

Who is Maria Hernandez?

This heavy hitter in the world of mathematics education has earned so many awards and fellowships that it's hard to keep up! In the field, we know and love her for her work around Learning Trajectories. We are excited by the interactive diagnostic assessment systems built on learning trajectories that she is currently designing, and find it interesting that she is connected to both of the states that our US-based team call home.

Who is Jere Confrey?

This creator of the first interactive science center in Ecuador works to pursue a true attitudinal change towards science and mathematics in all that she does. She has taught in the mathematics department at Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral in Guayaquil for nearly 40 years. There is a friendly rumor that a conversation with this friend of T2TGlobal spurred the original idea of Math Mobile. 

Who is Margarita Martínez?

This professor and author has extensive classroom experience and serves on the board of multiple organizations. She has traveled with us in Ecuador and gotten her students to write Global Math Stories. Her candor, practical advice for implementing Culturally Responsive Teaching, and work honoring African American Women Mathematicians made her episode of M4A arguably one of the most functional yet! 

Who is Shelly Jones?

300

This NYC professor's experience working in the Middle East brings a fresh perspective to the work of T2TGlobal. He has traveled with us to both Ecuador and Guatemala, where his expertise on early childhood mathematics and teaching mathematics to speakers of other languages have proven to be strong matches to community needs. 

Who is Hanna Haydar?

This ethnomathematician, professor, and current T2TGlobal board member has taught in Brazil, China, Canada, Haiti, and Mozambique. In the field, we know him for his expertise in proportional reasoning approaches to rational number knowledge. When Chadd thinks of his most trusted advisors, this socially responsive math educator is sure to top the list.

Who is Arthur Powell?

This Kentucky-based professor has co-authored some of the most popular books on the market for teacher pre-service and in-service learning. She was the lead writer for the Association of Math Teacher Educators Standards for the Preparation of Teachers of Mathematics and has been working with Chadd to support educators' discovery of student-centered learning in Zimbabwe and Malawi. Fairly new to T2TGlobal but having a child from Guatemala, she has a personal connection to our mission and geography.
