Ann comes to the ESTEME@OSU project from teaching mathematics at the community college level, primarily at Portland Community College. She earned a PhD in mathematics education from Portland State University in 2014. Her dissertation examined the informal ways of reasoning about ratio, rate and proportion that adult returning students bring to an arithmetic review class and how these ways of thinking interacted with the curriculum. Other research interests include teachers’ professional noticing of learners’ mathematical thinking and organizational change. Ann works on both the implementation and research sides of the ESTEME@OSU project. She chose ESTEME@OSU because of the parallel issues, such as retention and serving underrepresented learners, in pre-college mathematics courses at a community college and lower-division STEM courses offered at the university.
