About Me

Welcome! My name is Carla Dawson and I am an elementary math teacher in Vancouver, B.C. There are many parts to my identity, here are a few that matter to me the most. I am…

  • A wife to an amazing woman.

  • A teacher.

  • A mathematician.

  • In recovery from anorexia.

  • Managing the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety.

  • Completing a masters degree in counselling.

The goal of this website is to share my experiences of math, occasionally my student’s experiences of math, ideas for teaching math for understanding (TMFU), and my explorations of the intersection between learning math and counselling.
