From Maine to Miami, our new Math teacher came down south to “seek some warmth… .” She chats with Sophia Gostfrand.

Sophia Gostfrand: What are you teaching this year?

Gabrielle Schreffler: I’m teaching precalculus and calculus.

SG: What did you teach/do before coming to MCDS?

GS: I was working at a boarding school in Maine [Gould Academy] teaching math and coaching cross country and equestrian

SG: What is a surprising fact about yourself?

GS: I love to be outside so most of the time after school you will see running or cycling or just trying something new in the warm weather which is why I came down here.

SG: What’s the best part and worst part of teaching?

GS: The best thing about teaching is when students have been struggling about something and then they get that a-ha moment and you can see that they understand it now because they’ve learned it a different way.

SG: What do you want the students to know about you?

GS: I want the students to know that math isn’t all struggling and hard work it has a real application to the real world and even if you don’t leave math class loving math and thinking you’re going to be a mathematician just to know and appreciate that it has a real place.
