    Hi everyone – my name is Louise Tessier and I am a first year 6th grade math teacher in Philadelphia.

    I graduated college with a mathematics degree, and after college I signed up to teach adult women math. With no background in how to teach math and no training, I very much just explained math procedurally. In hindsight, this was not very effective. Since then, I have been to grad school and almost survived my first year of teaching (!!!). I have learned so much in the last two years about how to engage students in math and encourage them to make sense of things on their own. ‚ÄčI joined this acedemy to continue learning and growing as a math educator!!

    Grateful for platforms like this to exist. Excited to be here!
