New Assistant Director Announced

We are excited to announce that Sarah Bent has been hired as the new Assistant Director for Mathematics Leadership Programs. In this capacity, she will oversee the Master of Arts in Mathematics Teaching program and support the professional learning programs for K-8 math teachers locally and nationally.

She also worked as a visiting instructor for both the Master of Arts in Teaching and Master of Arts in Mathematics Teaching programs here at Mount Holyoke College and was also an adjunct faculty member at Westfield State University.
