“I believe in GMP because math is my second religion, it has never betrayed or disappointed me. I believe it is important for everyone to see in mathematics skills, a way to master life. It's important for us to convince our students that being able to keep up in a modern society without learning math, is not the right answer.”

Clarisa-Ioana Cavachi

“I believe the project would offer a new perspective of Math teaching in the milieu of Quebec teaching program. A different perspective, a different approach, a chance to get involved many types of students.”

I am a former Math Romanian teacher. After teaching math in Bucharest, Romania, for nine years, I have moved in Canada. While in Romania I was focused on teaching gifted students, in Canada, my focal point was opposed. In 2010 I have received the diagnosis of my son: he was on the autism spectrum disorder. I have done my master in behavioural intervention for children with autism and have worked in ABA clinics and school based environments with children with autism. While my son became fully independent and attended a private French school, while English is his first language, I have decided to go back to school to get my teaching permit in Quebec. I am presently in my second year of my second master degree, at the University of Quebec at Montreal. I have obtained my teaching permit in the province of Quebec this year and I have started to work full time as a Math teacher in a private French school in Laval, Quebec. I will finish my studies next year and I wish to pursue my education with a PhD in the field of the psychology of education, with the focus on children on the autism spectrum disorder. In the meantime, my students struggle with a very rigid curriculum and with very poor manuals in French. I need to find ways to extend their understanding, their perspective and, eventually, to raise their motivation to study math.

“I believe in GMP because, in my experience as an educator, it is hearing from and learning directly from each other that causes the most growth, and is the best way to support each other in our journey. My own journey as a math educator started from conversation with peers, and has been greatly impacted by math educators from around the world. I see the GMP as a key component in supporting each other in the journey.”
