 Dr. Alison J. Mello has been in education for over 25 years, working in New York and Massachusetts as a classroom teacher, math specialist, director of curriculum, and Assistant Superintendent. She holds an Ed.D. in educational leadership, and her research focuses on classroom learning environment and relationship to mathematical disposition. In addition to her work in public education, Alison is a published author and has spent the last decade as a national speaker, math consultant, and graduate instructor of in-service teachers. For several years she served on the board of  her NCTM affiliate ATMIM, and currently serves on the board of Massachusetts Mathematics Association of Teacher Educators.

Alison enjoys working to develop practical strategies to address issues that teachers face in their classrooms every day. She uses her understanding of curriculum and best practices to assist teachers in using the resources at their disposal to deliver the standards in ways that are meaningful, engaging, and truly impact student learning. Her passion for equity and access for all students drives her to continue to spend time during the summer offering graduate courses on Guided Math and Math Workshop. Her hope is that more teachers will use these powerful mechanisms to differentiate instruction and as a result, will more effectively meet the wide variety of needs that students present. Aside from engaging with students, which will always be the best part of working in education, Alison absolutely loves working with teachers and seeing them get excited about transforming their practice.
