Classroom Coach/Teacher

Robin brings her energy and enthusiasm for Math to classrooms in and around New York City while also incorporating these learning and teaching strategies in her own classroom two days a week at the College of Mount Saint Vincent since 2002.
For over 10 years, she has worked as a Math Education Field Supervisor for Touro College, Teachers College (Columbia), NYU and CMSV.   See below for a list of schools and or click here for a partial list of schools where she has supervised.

Robin is a New York state approved CTLE Provider of professional development workshops and/or mentoring/coaching.
She provides support for working teachers inside and outside the classroom which can take the form of real time in-class support, remote/onsite lesson planning and/or onsite specially designed workshops. She has worked with inservice teachers ranging from the Special Education Math department in South Huntington Long Island to Algebra I , Geometry, Algebra II, Precalculus and Personal Finance teachers and students at the Dr. Richard Izquierdo Health and Science Charter School in the South Bronx.

Coaching is student-focused with classroom and school visits with a co-teaching model and if requested Robin will step in and lead the class. She provides ideas for sharing planning, observation, debrief, next steps. Feedback is encouraging and includes action items and followup that promote student success and supports teachers’ learning and teaching styles.

Robin’s focus is on the learner experience which creates a dialogue that centers on student learning and the student’s perspective. She provides ideas and feedback to reach students where they are and boost their potential for Math content while building confidence and maximizing college and career opportunities.
At the high school level, this includes strategies for teachers, students, administrators and families on the Common Core Algebra I Regents which students need to pass to earn a high school diploma. Please click here for Robin’s call-to-action blog posts “Get the Math and Get the Points“.
