Juliana Tapper, M.Ed
Founder, Lead Math Consultant
I am a former high school math support and Algebra 1 teacher and co-teacher having taught, led departments, and led PLC teams at high schools in South Central Los Angeles, East San Jose, and Denver. I also served as a district math coach and TOSA where I led professional development for math and special education teachers across thirteen urban high schools.
Frustrated with the lack of support, resources, and quality professional development for math teachers that work with students below grade level, I founded CollaboratEd Consulting LLC in 2018 and have provided high quality PD to over 1200 secondary math teachers and have been hired by urban schools and rural districts across the US as well as the Colorado Department of Education to increase student engagement and outcomes in mathematics.
My work has been published in NCTM's journal, Mathematics Learning & Teaching, and I am an in demand presenter at national and state conferences including NCTM Annual, CMC North, Colorado Alternative Education Conference, and others. For references, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to bringing my passion and expertise to your school or district!
I hold a Masters of Education from UCLA and moved to Colorado in 2017. I live in Westminster with my husband, Stephen, our toddler, and chocolate lab. In my free time, I enjoy running, cooking, and time with friends.
