About Us

We are members of the upper school math department of The Park School of Baltimore–an independent, progressive school in Brooklandville, Maryland.

We think that mathematics is a beautiful subject, and that one of the best ways to interest all students in mathematics is to let them experience that for themselves.  We all tend to agree, too, that learning how to think is at least as important a part of a good mathematics education as is the core content.  After all, if a student is unable to tackle types of problems they haven’t seen before, what have they really learned?

However, we are all in constant friendly mutual disagreement about how best to achieve those lofty goals!  In this blog, we will be discussing our teaching lives with each other and (hopefully) with you.  We believe that the more conversation, the better.  And that talking about teaching mathematics can be almost as much fun as teaching it.

Contact Us
We are: Tony Asdourian, Arnaldo Cohen, Mimi Cukier, Angela Doyle, Bill Tabrisky, and Anand Thakker.  If you’d like to contact any of us individually, our emails are of the form first-initial-last-name@parkschool.net (like awiles@parkschool.net).
