About this Episode

Carlos Nicolas (Nico) Gomez shares some thoughts and questions from his work on mathematical identity to help teachers (including mathematics teacher educators) be more purposeful in their teaching. These questions include "Who am I as a teacher?" "What should we be doing?" "Why should we be doing these things?"
Nico also shares about his role as a member of TODOS: Mathematics for ALL, and the importance of groups within professional organizations that are based on particular expressions of identity (e.g., race) to help members navigate places of belonging within the profession.
