    I began my duties as Director of the Math Zone in July 2014. I have been in the field of math education for eight years now. I am very passionate about mathematics, its role in our daily lives and the long term impact that success in mathematics has on general academic achievement as well as earnings potential. I am fluent in Russian and Spanish and love learning new languages. I am interested in researching meaningful ways and long-term strategies that educators can use to reduce math anxiety both inside and outside of the classroom.
