Carolina Napp-Avelli is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Center for Mathematics Education. Dr. Napp-Avelli is originally from Argentina where she taught middle school and college mathematics for five years, and worked on professional development in mathematics education with elementary teachers in high poverty schools for two years. She now teaches mathematics and mathematics methods courses for pre-service and in-service elementary and middle school teachers. Several areas of interest are task-based student-centered mathematics teaching, mathematics education of emergent multilingual students, and issues of equity and diversity in mathematics education.
