I am the Coordinator of 21st Century Numeracy at Springfield Public Schools in Springfield, MO.  I also teach a graduate course at Drury University on Improving K-12 math instruction.  Prior to that, I was Numeracy Coach, a Math Recovery Intervention Specialist, and a classroom teacher.  I absolutely love what I do and feel very fortunate to get to work with such amazing teachers and students every day.

I have an M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction and an M.S. in Educational Leadership.

I have two boys, one in 4th grade and the other is a Senior in high school.  We have a dog named Isengard (because yes we are that nerdy).

I love to make and create and I love teaching math.  Finding new ways to engage students in mathematics through problem based learning and inquiry are passions of mine.  Other things I love are coding, tree hugging, sea turtles, science fiction and comics!

  1. Anne Arundel County Public Schools, Maryland, would like to use some of your 3-ACT Math lessons as extensions in their grade 3-5 curriculum. Do we have your permission to link to your page?


  2. Hi Catherine – I’m wondering if we could use some of your Three Acts Blog posts as Case Studies in our No Fear Coding book. It will go to publication in May 2017 for ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education). In working with my publisher we could pay you a small stipend and it would bring more traffic to your Blog!
