Emily is co-founder of Math Inspirations and author of Hands On Math and 10 Things Every Parent Should Know About Math. Emily’s pursuit of professional teaching began at Brigham Young University, being mentored by renowned math ed. guru Dr. Blake Peterson. After graduation, Emily moved to Arizona to teach in the public system and quickly realized the severe limitations of a traditional math education. So in 2012, Emily and her husband Joe moved their family to the Phoenix valley and founded Math Inspirations to mentor and empower homeschool parents to mentor their students using the Discovery Method to build them into confident, self-reliant, powerful thinkers.
