Jane Gannon

Gannon Consulting
Owner/Educational Math Consultant
I have been working in the education field of mathematics for over 20 years. My experience spans all four divisions, including classroom teaching, developing, writing, and editing mathematical resources for distance learning, teaching math at the University of Alberta in the Faculty of Education, and offering math consulting services to teachers, leadership staff, and parents. One of my greatest challenges, and successes, has been helping future teachers learn how to teach math to students, for students, with a careful alignment to curricular outcomes and processes. In recognition of the important role parents play in the education process, I also offer parent workshops and family math nights that help dispel the myths of the ‘new math’. I get parents (and their children) actively doing math, just as their children are doing in the classroom. The result is a stronger partnership between home and school, and less obstruction to the learning process (fewer parents teaching it ‘their way’ instead). I hold a Bachelor of Education, with a math major, and a Master of Education in Leadership and School Improvement, with a focus on assessment for learning in mathematics.
