Victoria

Engaging, inspiring, supportive…

The
daughter of James, a welder, and

Margaret Baldwin, a bookkeeper and single mother of one…

Who
loves to throw down a math challenge,

let all children investigate at their own pace,

talk and share with others their discoveries,

and to watch for and bask in those aha moments…

Who dislikes troublemakers, distractors and perennial objectors…

Who’d
like to go to the math museum,

with an entire class of children,

And together solve the no-left turn maze…

Who
would like to meet Pythagoras of Samos and

visit his secluded island of mathematical luminaries who

so early grasped that planets moved in accordance to equations,

and resonated as a symphony of music…

Who dreams of developing a traveling Math Museum

that brings interactive math installations to students at their school or

a math club for all in NJ…

Having run technology on Wall Street, developed original interactive internet projects and traveled the world as a management consultant…

Who
is determined to become a math teacher who understands that math is not a rote
test with time limits,

but is only pure when young minds are exploring problems…

Born in New Jersey, and having lived in North Arlington, Hoboken, London and NYC and now residing in Morristown…
