Robin Hummel taught fifth grade through high school in public schools for over 20 years in southern New Jersey. She began her career as a high school history teacher, taught English in middle school, and taught all subjects in the upper-elementary grades. She also received extensive training as a coordinator for the International Baccalaureate Program.
Her work as a classroom teacher immersed her in constructivist practice and inquiry.
She taught an undergraduate course in language arts literacy at Rutgers University and is presently an instructor and advisor at Bank Street College in the Math Leadership Program. Her focus is on action research. As an independent consultant in public and independent schools throughout the United States, Robin created and taught a course that focused on deepening the math content knowledge and advancing the pedagogy of teachers. She has facilitated professional development through action research and created and taught a course on assessment across the curriculum.
Robin cares deeply about nurturing the intellect of teachers. Her goal as a professional developer is to promote independent, reflective teachers and to support them in collecting data that they can use to make sound judgments about their teaching.
Robin received her MS in Math Leadership from Bank Street College and is currently working on her doctoral dissertation in Educational Leadership and Change at Fielding University, located in Santa Barbara, California.
