    Jen Carter is a Numeracy Coordinator for Vernon School District, Treasurer of the BCAMT and a member of BC Numeracy Network. As a prior elementary teacher and administrator, Jen had a deep curiosity about the discomfort students and teachers feel around mathematics.  This personal inquiry led to her current “passion” and role working alongside teachers to explore and rethink what mathematics education currently is, and the possibilities of what it can be for students. Outside of her work in schools, Jen can be found taking classes at a local pottery studio, enjoying the outdoors in the beautiful Okanagan, or paddleboarding at her cottage on Shuswap Lake.
