Math For America Logo

MSTI provides support for the Math for America San Diego program.

Dr. Lisa Lamb, is the SDSU Math for America faculty coordinator. She recruits and provides support for prospective mathematics credential students who meet the criteria for Math for America Fellows.

I joined the faculty of San Diego State's School of Teacher Education in Fall, 1998 as a mathematics educator. Previously I taught high school mathematics at public schools in Virginia and California. My research focuses on students’ conceptions of integers and how to support students’ development of integers. In other efforts, I am working with a CRMSE group to study teachers’ perspectives at different years of participation in sustained professional development focused on children’s mathematical thinking.
