About Shandy Hauk
At SF State Since:
I grew up in and around Los Angeles. My bachelor's degree is in theater and film-making (at the University of California, Irvine, UCI). My first California teaching credential was in English, then a supplemental credential in math. I taught middle and high school math and English (mostly) for about 5 years before quitting, mortgaging the small house I’d bought using my teacher's salary, and returning to UCI in math. Finished a math PhD at UCI and a mathematics education post-doc at Arizona State. My current work is in three areas: supporting people who teach math at all grade levels (including college) to do it better, supporting people who learn math to do it better, and supporting people who design policy for math teaching and learning to do it better.
