Q & A with Outstanding Student in Mathematics Education Leadership – K-8 Math Specialist Program, Sarah Greenberg:
Would you like to give any shout-outs to those who supported you along the way?
I can confidently say that my experience at George Mason was the highlight of my academic career. I loved every single minute of it. My professors were hands-down the best educators I’ve ever met. Their love of teaching and learning is contagious and their classes left me thinking about mathematical concepts for days and weeks afterward. Not only are they fantastic instructors, they are also incredible people that I am proud to know and call my mentors. Thank you Dr. Courtney Baker, Dr. Laura Bitto, and Dr. Theresa Wills! I would also like to thank my classmates, a truly amazing group of people, who pushed me to think in new ways and made me a better educator. Thank you to my family for supporting and encouraging me throughout the program. And thank you to my fiancé, Scott, for letting me tell you about what I learned about after every class and enthusiastically completing the math practice problems I asked you to do.
