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 and coaching for schools, districts, and state departments of education to increase student engagement and outcomes in mathematics with staggering success.


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, CAMT, ASCD, and more. For references, please contact I look forward to bringing my passion and expertise to your school or district!

I'm also a mom, dog mom, wife to an incredible hubby, and obsessed with chai tea. I grew up a beach girl in Santa Monica, California, but turned mountain mama when we relocated just outside of Denver, Colorado.
