As a passionate educator with over twenty years of experience, I’ve witnessed the incredible power of math to transform lives, especially in marginalized communities. My work focuses on Equity in Mathematics, where I partner with educators and families to create learning environments that nurture curiosity and affirm identities. Together, we can challenge traditional boundaries and cultivate spaces where every child can thrive as a confident mathematician. Join me in this journey to empower our learners by embracing exploration over compliance, making a profound impact on the educational landscape.

Expect Equity – Get Results

I was very inspired by my coaching experience with Elly. She has a deep passion for facilitating professional learning and engaging with teachers in deep inquiry around mathematical concepts. My math instruction grew exponentially from my work with her- from navigating students’ mindsets around math more skillfully to prioritizing math talk as a consistent practice, to exposing all children to rich grade-level content while meeting individual students’ foundational needs. In addition to Elly’s leadership as a math educator and coach, Elly cares deeply about the well-being of teachers and learners. She engages in supportive conversations and connects with care. Working with Elly was a transformative experience for me as a seasoned teacher and I am deeply grateful.

For years, since I was a child, I had what I would call math trauma. As a child, I feared and hated math. As an elementary school teacher, I had so much anxiety around teaching math, until I started working at Heketi. Elly is one Mathematician who helped changed my perspective on teaching math. In our curriculum planning sessions, we focused on addressing Common Core Standards, addressing and planning for students’ misconceptions, and identifying how these concepts are relevant in the day-to-day life of students. My big takeaways from working with Elly: If you want students to think critically about math, be flexible with multiple strategies, understand the difference between process over steps, and have fun while solving math, then Elly can help you strengthen these areas. She was always easily accessible, and I always enjoyed our math talks. I hated teaching math because of how it was taught to me as a kid, and I was not confident in the content I was teaching. Elly will help you unpack and move beyond math trauma.
