Jeff Todd, has been a teacher since 1995. He lives in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts where he has taught grades 5 to 12 and worked with math teachers from all grades in a K to 8 School. Known as Dr. Todd to his students, he completed his Doctoral Work in Math Education at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. His dissertation focused on lesson planning and its links to student achievement.
Jeff likes to think of teaching as an art as much as a science. With a visual orientation to mathematics, he focuses on the use of multiple representations in class. He likes a good story and believes in finding connections between math and literature, math and the media, math and science, math and history… anything with math in it!
Outside of teaching Jeff has many interests and activities ranging from running an after school chess club, participating in musical theater as a technical director, stage managing for large conferences, and co-directing a worship band for his church.
