Professional Development Overview


The Center for Mathematics and Teaching was founded by a small group of mathematics educators who worked together in the Mathematics Department at UCLA. We employ teacher-leaders with experience as mathematics teachers and PD providers in elementary through high school, though our expertise lies mainly in middle school. All of our teacher-leaders have also worked as one or more of the following: university lecturer; university mathematics project teacher-leader; district or site mathematics coach; mathematics textbook author; consultant. We will work with you to support your needs, no matter how big or small.
