Welcome! My name is Mary Margaret Sanford, and I am currently a student at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I plan to graduate in December 2020 with a B.S. in Mathematics with a concentration in Secondary Education and minors in English and Business Administration. I believe my content knowledge, as well as my time in the GeauxTeach program, have guided me into a very capable candidate for a career in mathematics and education.
Upon graduation, I plan to attend a graduate program in Curriculum and Instruction to advance my knowledge in education and mathematics instruction. From my time observing and teaching in mathematics classrooms in the Baton Rouge area, I have come across many students who hate or struggle in mathematics. Most of the time, their struggles stem from the students’ inability to connect to the math curriculum taught in their classroom. My hope to work for a company, or state department, working to develop math curriculums that can connect to students and show them the value of learning mathematics.
I have created this website to showcase the relevant work I have accomplished in my activities in college and to portray my passion for mathematics and education. I hope you enjoy browsing through and learning more about me!
