Anjali Deshpande was a middle school mathematics teacher in two public schools in the Bronx. In recognition of her effectiveness as a teacher, she became a mathematics coach. Teachers have found Anjali to be a joy to work with and her suggestions and support invaluable in changing their practice. She is currently pursuing a doctorate in Urban Education at New York University in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. Anjali approaches issues in mathematics education through a lens of racial equity and social justice, based on the research that shows algebra is a gatekeeper subject in schools today. Anjali believes that the way mathematics is taught has a great impact on students capacity to problem solvie. Problem solving is critical to improving the academic outcomes for some of our most disadvantaged children. She has dedicated her career to serving youth through teaching and learning with fellow math teachers in urban communities. Fundamental to Anjali’s practice are meaningful student discourse about relevant and challenging mathematics, incorporating feedback and assessment for the benefit of the students, and planning for success. Anjali specializes in middle school mathematics.
