I’m a secondary mathematics teacher at Westview Centennial Secondary School in the Toronto District School Board. I’m returning to the classroom following a stint as a TDSB Math Coach and Coordinator of Mathematics and Numeracy. I view math education through the perspective of equity, inclusion and anti-oppression and its intersection with student identities. As a powerful tool and vehicle for social change, I see math as student empowerment and ensure they see its learning as a social enterprise that challenges them to think critically and collaboratively.
I am also a staunch advocate for the elimination of streaming in education — that is, the separation of students into distinct learning pathways based on students’ perceived abilities and identities. I have worked at the school and system levels to support teachers with inclusive math practices and shape policy to remove streaming as a structure barrier to equity and inclusion.
When I’m not doing all that, I pet my cat, try to read something, play a sport, watch a superhero movie, and be with friends and family.
