I enjoyed the PhD environment and feel the experience continues to improve my practice.


Program/Degree: Mathematics Education PhD

Year Graduated: 2009
Program/Degree: Secondary Mathematics Education MSc

I completed my MSc in Secondary Mathematics Education at Simon Fraser University in December 2009. My professors and peers created a learning environment that was stimulating and challenging.

I enrolled in the PhD program because I enjoyed the environment and I am interested in broadening my understanding of mathematics and mathematics education. I feel it is necessary to continue improving my teaching practice.

My master’s research involved identifying cognitive, social, and emotional factors behind secondary students’ avoidance behaviour in mathematics.
