**18 TEACHING FELLOWS + 16 MASTER TEACHERS**MƒA Boston has a corps of 34 teachers in the greater-Boston area. These Teaching Fellows and Master Teachers work together to put content and how students learn mathematics at the core of secondary mathematics education. They are exceptional teachers who act as leaders in their districts and are dedicated to enriching their students' mathematical experiences .

## EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR + BOARD OF DIRECTORS

**Executive Director of**

**MƒA**

**Boston – Mr. Keith Hilles-Pilant**: MƒA Boston’s only employee, Keith Hilles-Pilant largely donates his time, choosing to work for only an honorarium. Keith joined MƒA Boston in March 2014, after retiring from a distinguished career as a mathematician which included government work, work in the private sector, and 35 years as a classroom teacher of mathematics. Keith’s career associations include Los Alamos Scientific Lab, NASA (OAS Copernicus project), IBM Research, SUNY, Princeton, University of Illinois, Hotchkiss School, Milton Academy (teaching mathematics there from 1986-2013), the Clay Mathematics Institute (founding the CMI Junior Research Fellows program for high school students), Columbia University (Klingenstein Fellow), University of Saint Andrews (University Fellow), and School Year Abroad (teaching in France, Spain, Japan, and Italy). Keith participated in PROMYS for Teachers in 2009, 2010, and 2014. Keith is also an Associate of the Harvard University Department of the History of Science.

**Dr. Al Cuoco, Director**: Al’s career in mathematics education spans more than 40 years. He is Distinguished Scholar and Director of the Center for Mathematics Education at Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC), where he works in curriculum development, professional development, and education policy and is lead author of a four-year, NSF-funded, comprehensive high school mathematics program. Al was co-director of Focus on Mathematics and also co-directed the development of the course for secondary teachers in the Institute for Advanced Study program at the Park City Mathematics Institute. Al taught high school mathematics in Woburn, Massachusetts from 1969 until 1993, except for a leave, during which he earned a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Brandeis University. In 2018, the Mathematical Association of America presented the Mary P. Dolciani Award to Al for his contributions to mathematics education.

**Professor Sol Friedberg, Director**: Sol is James P. McIntyre Professor of Mathematics at Boston College. A well-known researcher in number theory and representation theory and a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, Sol served as Chair of the BC Mathematics Department for nine years and led the development of a new and highly regarded doctoral program. Sol has been involved in pre-collegiate mathematics education since the 1990s. He has been an editor of the CBMS book series Issues in Mathematics Education from 2006 on, serves on the National Academy of Science's U.S National Commission on Mathematics Instruction, and is the lead organizer for a project to evaluate the nation's math standards organized by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute. He also received an Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching from the Mathematical Association of America in 2009, and is Chair of the AMS-MAA Joint Committee on TAs and Part-Time Instructors. Sol is co-principal investigator for current NSF-funded project "Exemplary Mathematics Educators for High-need Schools" Noyce grant, through which Boston College partners with MƒA Boston in support of Teaching Fellows.

**Professor Haynes Miller, Director**: Haynes has been Professor of Mathematics at MIT since 1986; he is an algebraic topologist. Haynes served as Undergraduate Officer in Mathematics and chaired the Mathematics Department Education Committee for ten years, and was the first Associate Department Head in Mathematics, from 2011 to 2013. He has been a member of the MIT OpenCourseWare Faculty Advisory Committee since 2008. He is a member of the Technical Advisory Committee for the Association of American University Undergraduate STEM Education Initiative and of the American Mathematical Association's Committee on Education. Among other educational pursuits, Haynes was the Principal Investigator of a d'Arbeloff Fund grant to build interactive learning tools to support university level Mathematics education, and is the PI of a Davis Educational Foundation grant to produce a flipped and technologically enhanced introduction to probability and statistics at MIT. Haynes was named an MIT MacVicar Faculty Fellow in 2005, for a ten-year period, for "exemplary and sustained contributions to the teaching and education of undergraduates at MIT."

**Professor Steven Rosenberg**,

**Treasurer**: Steve is Professor of Mathematics at Boston University and former department chairman. For 27 summers, Steve has taught at the PROMYS program for talented high school students. He has written numerous papers and a graduate textbook in differential geometry and has organized several international conferences in mathematical physics. Steve is the co-Principal Investigator of the BU NSF Noyce grant, Math for America Boston: Teaching Scholars Program. Steve was involved with Focus on Mathematics, serving on the advisory board and facilitating study groups. Steve participates in recruitment and selection of MƒA Fellows and in their professional development activities.

**Professor Glenn Stevens,**

**President and Chair**: Glenn is Professor of Mathematics at Boston University, where he has taught and conducted research since 1984. He is Director of the Program in Mathematics for Young Scientists (PROMYS), a program at Boston University for aspiring young mathematicians founded by Glenn in 1989, and PROMYS for Teachers, a related program he founded in 1990 for teachers of all ages. Glenn was Principal Investigator of Focus on Mathematics – a unique partnership of mathematicians, teachers and school districts dedicated to increasing student achievement by providing to mathematics teachers the content knowledge and skills valuable in their profession. Initially funded as a Math Science Partnership Program by the National Science Foundation in 2003, Focus on Mathematics grew to encompass a large mathematical community in the Boston area with diverse professional development opportunities. In 2010, the Massachusetts Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education appointed Glenn Chair of the Common Core Mathematics Review Board. Glenn is co-Principal Investigator of the NSF Noyce grant, Math for America Boston: Teaching Scholars Program and is the Principal Investigator for Assessing Secondary Teachers’ Algebraic Habits of Mind, an NSF DRK-12 collaborative grant with colleagues from Education Development Center, Inc. and St. Olaf College.
