Paul Wonsavage serves as a post-doc of mathematics with the Lastinger Center for Learning. Paul supports an NSF funded grant, the PDPD project, which focuses on incremental changes in teachers’ instruction. As a post doc research associate, I work with our research team to develop and test PD materials to support algebra teachers and conduct research on the efficacy of the PD model in terms of student learning outcomes and teachers’ instructional practices.
Prior to graduate school, he taught high school mathematics for seven years. In 2015, he began graduate school and joined a state-wide research-practice partnership between NC K-12 mathematics educators, NC universities, and the NC Department of Public Instruction.
He earned his doctorate from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Paul and his family enjoy traveling to new cities and eating at local (off the beaten path) food spots.
