Chris Confer & Marco Ramirez: Leveraging Change Through Mathematics

About the Authors

Chris Confer
Chris has a passion for both mathematics and teaching children. "My parents were both educators," she explains. "When I was seven years old, one of my favorite activities was playing school with my two-year-old brother Dickey, who amiably played student along with my stuffed animals and assorted toys. . . . And when I learned to love art as a high schooler, I longed to make beautiful bulletin boards, which is what I thought a teacher did. In reality, of course, teaching is very different. I love it.

Marco Ramirez
Marco Ramirez is an award-winning educator who has successfully transformed schools using mathematics as leverage for change. After working eighteen-hour days as a buyer and broker, Marco did some soul searching and realized that he wanted to have more time for family and a life outside of work. His wife, Julie, suggested that he work as a substitute teacher while returning to college.
