About this Episode

Marrielle Myers shares her story of becoming a mathematics teacher educator, and gives good advice about choosing service opportunities that align with professional goals, and allowing space for things that come up during the year.
When she was the coordinator for a large teacher preparation program, Marrielle noticed that preservice teachers of color were facing microaggressions that went unrecognized by their supervisors. She worked to create structural supports, supports for students, and training to help address these issues.
