Kat Hendry is a Mathematics Educator that believes learning mathematics effectively has the power to empower students, families, and whole communities. Kat is currently a School Based Math Facilitator for the Limestone District School Board in Kingston, ON. She has taught both internationally and in Ontario as well as across grade levels and into post - secondary programs at St. Lawrence College and Queen’s University. Her background in Grounded Theory research has supported her work in classrooms by taking the approach of getting to know the student through many data points to support their learning. Kat continues to share her passion for learning and math education not only in the classroom but also through student enrichment opportunities such as the Math OlymPIcs, presenting at conferences (OAME, OTF, MADPD, Meeting the Needs, etc.), reviewing articles for the OAME Gazette, and of course on Twitter! Kat’s greatest joy is her family whom thankfully understand her passion for math education and even exude some of their own. Although Kat dedicates much of her time to her work and family, she loves to dive into a good book, cook, bake, and when the opportunity arises paint – be it on canvas or house, the relaxation is the same!
