EDUCATOR, CONSULTANT, AUTHOR, ILLUSTRATOR, AND MATH LOVER
Hi! My name is Pam and this is my website…
I have spent the past 15+ years working in the fields of STEM education, program and curriculum development.
Learn more about me below and feel free to follow me on social media or send me an email at email@example.com
I am a certified teacher in Ontario in Math and Science at the high school level. I also have a Master’s Degree in Mathematics for Teachers and a PhD Education where I did my thesis on a pre-service elementary teacher course focused on building math content knowledge.
I have also presented at a number of conferences on issues in Math and STEM Education. You can see some of them below.
I have been asked to present at a number of conferences on a variety of topics. Some of these include:
- Math Curriculum in Ontario: A Historical Perspective; Canadian Math Society (April 2021); you can view the talk on YouTube
- Addressing Math Content Knowledge and Math Anxiety in a Teacher Education Program; Fields Math Education Forum (January 2021)
- AI is Here. Have Some Fear? 5 Assurances To Alleviate and Educate You on the Potential of Artificial Intelligence in K-12 Education; Learning & Training Conference (December 2020)
I have also done a number of interviews for the Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education (CJSMTE), which can see on YouTube
For over 8 years I had the privilege of working for the Math Department at the University of Toronto as their Outreach Coordinator. It was during this time I met amazing and fascinating mathematicians who taught me to see the world of math all around me and developed a passion for the subject.
With this in mind I started LOOK: MATH! which follows Alpha (my math loving dog) on adventures to see math in the world around him!
Author and Illustrator
As a way to bring my math passion to youth I have been hard at work on writing a children’s book aimed at students in Grades 4 – 6 that follows the adventures of Alpha (my Math Loving Dog) on his journey to find his forever home here in Toronto and all the math he encounters along the way.
To really bring Alpha’s Adventures to life I also illustrated the book and am the dedicated photographer and social media guru for Alpha!

(please note: we took a little break from social media while I worked on my PhD but we’ll be back soon!)
I have over 16 years experience in program and curriculum development and in 2014 I started VedaVox Inc as a way to help others achieve their educational program goals.
