Sandra Fivecoat - Master's: Mathematics Education, 1979
THANKS to The University of Texas and an NSF funded "Women In Science" grants program, I was able to focus on mathematics education and technology, at a time when few women were entering technical fields. As a result, I have had a long and wonderful career in the education technology world -- Culminating in my founding and leading a company called WeAreTeachers.com, LLC. We focus on teacher empowerment and collaboration, and we find corporate sponsors who provide grants and funding for innovative teaching ideas. We believe real education reform happens at the classroom practitioner level, and love seeing what a huge impact classroom teachers make when given just a little extra help and inspiration. THANKS UT for providing the foundation for the skills I needed to make a small contribution back to the teaching and education profession that has made such an impact on me personally and professionally -- HOOK 'EM.
