  • About

    Jill is a math teacher for CSP who is grateful to have the opportunity to teach and to learn math and more through spending time with her colorful, curious, engaged, and thoughtful students.  On the intellectual side, her professional interests include teaching as a wisdom tradition, math as language, and modern physics as philosophy.  In the broader realm of social issues, her passions include equal access in education, multicultural classrooms, local-global peace activism, and environmental sustainability.  When she is not working with students, Jill enjoys jogging in the park, writing and sharing poems and stories, hiking, gardening, volunteering with children, practicing her Spanish, and dabbling in new arts such as classical guitar, sign language, and, most recently, vegetarian cooking.
