Hi! I’m Mary Roberts, and I will be teaching Mad Dog Math. In my career as an educator, I have been a teacher and an administrator, working in both public and private schools. I taught third and fifth grade, and served as an elementary and middle school principal and high school assistant principal. As an administrator, my chief tasks were evaluating and mentoring teachers, and selecting and coordinating curriculum from kindergarten through high school. In addition, I have tutored students of all grades on an individual basis for a number of years.
It is an honor that my dear friend, Julie Kotoff, the creator, developer, and teacher of the Mad Dog Math Program, has selected me to assume her role at PCLC. Julie and I taught together for four years many years ago, and have been the best of friends ever since. After substitute teaching in her Mad Dog Math classes, as well as using her program one-on-one with students, I believe Mad Dog Math is one of the best tools for developing a strong math foundation for students of all ages.
On a personal note, my husband Jeff and I enjoy paddle boarding several times a week, year round. We are blessed with three grown children and a daughter-in-law and son-in-law. Our yellow lab, Miette, completes our family.
