I am a mother, wife and high school math teacher. This year I will be starting a new teaching adventure at Kent Place School in Summit, NJ and my favorite class to teach is AP Statistics! This is my 25th year of teaching. @mathteacher24 is my twitter handle and I doing a #teach180 blog this year at mathteacher24.blogspot.com. I have several tech related videos for stat and TI-NSpire at www.youtube.com/mathteacher24. I also enjoy playing singing reading and doing crazy workouts from Beachbody (P90X/Insanity/TurboFire).
I am entering my 16th year of teaching, mostly at Miami East High School in Casstown, Ohio. Mostly, I've taught Geometry, Precalculus, and AP Calculus. In July, I attended TMC18 for the first time, and I hope to go back soon. I am married with three children and one on the way! I look forward to sharing and implementing what I learned at TMC18 this year and beyond!
I am a math coach for a K-5 elementary school in Hilliard, OH and an adjunct professor at Otterbein University. Along with a K-8 teaching license, I hold a K-12 admin license and a doctorate in mathematics education. I have been learning more and more each year from kids since I began teaching 22 years ago. @BaileyJodie is my twitter handle and I have a blog at jodiebailey.weebly.com. I am also experimenting with building a website to help families talk about math at home at ourmathplayground.weebly.com. I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have two sons who keep us busy with hockey, golf, and lacrosse.
Jason Kissel is about to start his 6th year as a high school math teacher in Columbus, Ohio. He has taught the whole spectrum of high school classes, from AP Statistics to EL Algebra 1. He has an awesome wife and 2 little kids who take up all of his time in the summer. Jason is a self confirmed skeptic about many things in life, and his plunge into the online math community and specifically going to Twitter Math Camp far exceeded his expectations. His hobbies include roasting and brewing coffee far too much, reclaimed woodworking, and gardening/raising chickens.
Molly Rawding, PhD, is a K-5 math coach in Lexington, Massachusetts. Previously she has worked in elementary and middle school in northern Virginia and seacoast New Hampshire. She loves working with teachers and students to engage in fun, creative, playful mathematics.
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.
