Zareen Aga, graduate of the PhD program in Mathematics Education and current Assistant Professor at James Madison University was awarded an NSF CAREER grant!

Zareen’s project is titled, “CAREER: Preparing Middle and High School Pre-service Teachers for Critical Mathematics Education.” Its main objective is to develop a cohesive system of support for middle and high school pre-service teachers to become critical mathematics teachers (CMTs). CMTs are teachers who question existing power structures and conceptualize teaching mathematics as a political act.

Congratulations Zareen!
