Hilary is a passionate, dedicated, and well-rounded educator whose interests in education span from mathematics to behavioral analysis to accessibility. She began her career as an elementary teacher. Spending many lunch periods modeling mathematics instruction for her colleagues, she later decided to become a Math Coach to be able to support teacher understanding of mathematics, while still being able to teach and impact students.
As a member of several local, regional, and national mathematics teacher organizations, she became interested in educational leadership and was elected the President of the Boston Area Mathematics Specialists organization, a professional development network for supervisors of mathematics. As she continued to study mathematics education, curriculum development, and educational policy, she joined the Center for Mathematics Achievement at Lesley University, where she now acts as the director, providing high-quality professional development, coursework, and training to educators.
Hilary is a Certified U.S. Math Recovery® Intervention Specialist, reviewer for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) journals, and a local, regional, and national speaker. She also is endorsed to teach Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) learners and holds both Special Education and Mathematics licensure.
