# Hello world!

Here’s what I put in my profile, and I guess I’ll put it here too.

I’m a mother of 3 boys, ages 5, 10 and 13, who all attend a small progressive private school.

I have a math/computer bachelor’s degree and an EECS master’s degree. I work part-time as a computer scientist. I also volunteer a few hours a week in my children’s school to help out with their math program. I teach mathematical problem solving to children from 5 to 14 years old, and I coach interested older children who participate in Mathematical Olympiads for Elementary and Middle School Students, and MathCounts for Middle School students. I don’t have any formal teacher training, but this is my 5th year doing this, and I’m getting pretty good at it. 🙂

I’m here to ramble about my experiences in this role as “math mom”.

Thanks for your kind words, Dave. My blog is not as focused as yours, but I hope you’ll find some interesting ideas here.

I didn’t see any references to Math Circles in your blog. If there is one in your area it could be a very good resource for your children:
