Justin Lanier here. I work at the Princeton Learning Cooperative, helping young people to self-direct their own lives and learning without school. This is my second year at PLC.
This is my tenth year of classroom teaching. I previously taught middle and high school math at Saint Ann’s School in Brooklyn, NY.
Most days, I do some math—either reading a book, planning a class, working on a problem, or having a conversation. Doing mathematics and sharing it with others is a big part of how I think about myself. I blog about my experiences of helping other people to also say, at least sometimes, “I choose math.”
