Round Table

This month, join the WAESN Executive and Youth Advisory teams in a discussion on the topics of Module 3, featuring Akin Alston.

Akin Alston is well known to have an innovative, charismatic and unconventional approach to mathematics teaching and learning. He is constantly developing new community based initiatives and services to support higher mathematics achievement in communities of color. Alston works continually to develop professional relationships with an extensive network of educators, legislators, advocates, and professionals in many STEM relevant fields, as well as parents and corporate executives with the shared desire to reform our nation’s educational system and standards of achievement. He dreams of seeing a nationwide mathematics renaissance where students simply learn to love doing mathematics.

Join us for a conversation about ethnic studies, indigeneity, finding yourself, and challenging the failures of DEI.
