Catheryne Draper founded The Math Studio, Inc. in 1982, after 10 years of teaching and supervisory experiences in GA public schools, and six years as a consultant and editor for publishers of math educational materials in IL and MA. During her math education tenure she has held teaching certificates in three states and has been involved with math education at K-12 levels in public and private schools, at the college level, and in the development of regular and special ed instructional materials. She conducts teacher training workshops, coaches adults and school-age students, and develops math instructional tools. Draper has a B.S. in Mathematics and an M.Ed in Mathematics Education and Supervision from the University of Georgia. As president of The Math Studio, Inc., she regularly presents professional development programs at state, regional, and national math conferences. A needlework sampler in Draper’s office sums up her idea of the best kind of teaching: “A good teacher teaches their students to teach themselves.”
