Ashley Kearney’s classroom is a bridge connecting the demand for exceptional mathematicians in the development of our nation with the critical underrepresentation of persons of color in STEM. Her pedagogy affirms students’ identity, acknowledges their brilliance, and assigns them roles such as engineers and analysts as they focus on reasoning through and solving real-world problems. Ashley ensures opportunities for experiential learning for teachers and students through interactions with pilots at the Air & Space Museum, attending the annual Congressional Black Caucus Science & Technology Braintrust, and hearing from nifty fifty speakers associated with the USA Science & Engineering Festival. Ashley’s leadership has developed nearly 100 mathematics teachers in Washington, D.C., and throughout the northeast region.
