Dr. Jennifer Bay Williams

Interim Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Accreditation, University of Louisville

Dr. Bay-Williams is an internationally respected mathematics educator. She is a prolific author and popular speaker on topics related to effective mathematics teaching. Her work has focused on ways to ensure every student understands mathematics and develops a positive mathematics identity (i.e., feels they can do math!). Her most recent work has focused on fluency in mathematics, communicating that it is more than learning facts and algorithms, but is about being able to reason and choose appropriate strategies. Her books on fluency and on mathematics coaching are best sellers, as is her book Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally.

Dr. Jenée Myers Twitchell
