Example text

I have felt very humbled as I have learned more about my personal history as a learner in various phases of my learning journey as a mathematics teacher educator and—as I have seen more poignantly through my engagement with memory work—the faces and the intentions of the enablers who have been pivotal at various places along my learning journey.
