I am a mother, wife and math teacher. I currently teach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA and my favorite class to teach is statistics! This is my 27th year of teaching and I am a Desmos fellow and Desmos certified presenter. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I blog at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. Feel free to ask me questions about National Board Certification (renewed in 2015). I also enjoy singing, reading and staying fit using workouts from Beachbody (P90X3/TurboFire/21DFX).

I am a teacher. I love what I do and challenge myself to continually expand my knowledge in the teaching field. I am a learner. I am married to my high school sweetheart and share my days with our three Siberian huskies. When I am not walking the dogs, cleaning up their hair, or reading a good book, I enjoy running and hiking. No children for me, but I have been honored to teach hundreds of amazing young people over the years. I am truly blessed!

Mathematics Coordinator, Secondary Mathematics
Vanessa started teaching high school straight out of college, barely older than her students and with way less life experience than many of them. In her 20-something-year journey as an educator, she has had the privilege to work and learn with students of every background imaginable. Her current work, as a coordinator with the county office of education, allows her to use lessons learned to shape the educational system.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts English Learners: Routines that Leverage Strengths & Optimize Learning, Plus GMD Participant Sharing
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
