About Thomas

About Thomas
All students deserve access to the tools that showcase their brilliance: tools that allow them to understand, question, predict, and reshape the world around them. This is why I am passionate about making interactive, collaborative, and authentic learning experiences so student can develop their own identities as powerful practitioners of mathematics rather than feeling like mathematics is simply the practice of mimicking a disconnected, arbitrary set of procedures.
