Hello, my name is Haley Kavanaugh and I’m in the Masters and Credential in Science and Mathematics Education (MACSME) program here at UC Berkeley. I was born and raised in the Bay Area and completed my undergraduate degree at Sonoma State University. In terms of research, I am interested in studying how to make mathematics more transparent and relevant to students, as well as how to get students to engage in productive mathematical discourse. When I’m not teaching or in class, I work part-time at a restaurant in the town I live in. In my free time I enjoy hiking and going to concerts with friends.
