I am Kaneka Turner a math educator who serves the local education community in and around Charlotte, NC. After serving Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools as district math specialists, math coach and elementary classroom teacher for 18 years, I started Reimage Mathematics with the hope of reframing the negative image of math learning for adults and children. Having been “raised” within the structures of a large urban school district, I understand the many complexities that exist in public education and seek to serve districts and schools as they address equity in math education for all.
I am currently serving as Lead Grade 4 Writer for Illustrative Mathematics OER, Elementary Math Curriculum to be released in August of 2021. Learning is deeply personal and emotional. Supporting the needs of learners and the adult learners who teach and lead them is among the most important work we will do in this life. Teaching is my gift and I feel blessed to share it with you.
