Math Therapy: A Crash Course in Becoming a Math Therapist

About This Webinar

Did you know that pretty much anyone who thinks they're "not a math person" has math trauma they simply haven't worked through yet? Look, we’ve all had math teachers before…but how many of you have had a math therapist?! If you’re ready to dig deep, this crash course in math therapy is for you! This workshop will teach you the art of math therapy and empower you with the tools you need to add “math therapy” to your list of teachables. Through teaching math, we can empower our students to believe that they are capable of anything, and that everything is possible. That is the greatest gift we can give our students, and THAT is what being a math therapist is all about!

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!

She failed Grade 11 math twice, which was the best thing that ever happened to her. Sidenote but totally relevant: Vanessa is a founding member of Toronto indie-rock band Goodnight, Sunrise. Mindy Kaling is her idol and Vanessa believes that she should be yours too.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts Math Therapy: A Crash Course in Becoming a Math Therapist
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.
