“I have known and worked with Dr. Helene Sherman off and on for over twenty years. As an ultimate professional, she spearheaded several projects I taught in over the years and her expertise, her strong understanding of math, and her passion for how people learn is evident in all she does! Her easy-going nature along with a great sense of humor combine to make her approachable in students’ eyes. I am always impressed at how well-read Helene is as she explores new ways of teaching and learning.”
