Sandra In The News!
How could I have forgotten to post about this?
To begin with, gosh, could they have used worse pictures of her?
But to be honest, it’s an extremely proud moment for our entire family (my mom was really going off the walls over this).
My wife is kind of a dynamic person in this respect: you would never guess, just talking to her, that she has a fairly high level grasp of mathematics (not to mention that in person, she looks like she’s 18 (especially when she goes with the curly hair)). I was quite suprised to see some of her coursework in psychology and education which had her in classes similar to mid-high level computer science math courses (probability and statistics).
As a teacher, she’s one of those increasingly rare ones that won’t take any crap from the students or the parents…she’s very straight up to the parents about her expectations of them and how their role in the development of their child (at least while they’re in her class) is crucial to the child’s success. She has a whole crazy system in place to make parents and their kids accountable.
So if your school district is intereted in this Singapore math business, do take a look at her SDE profile 😉
