Kathryn (Bell) Gomes
I was homeschooled k-12 and I loved it, but math was not the strongest part of my home education. I’ll never forget my first day in a calculus classroom at the University of Pittsburgh, I was so unprepared! I survived and was able to graduate with a major in mathematics, but not without noting quite a few things I wish I had done differently in high school. Now that I am homeschooling my own kids I’m committed to helping other homeschooled students enter college math classrooms prepared and confident.
I taught mathematics in the public schools of Philadelphia for seven years, hold a masters in math education from the University of Pennsylvania, and authored Apologia’s elementary math program. Find out more about my curriculum here.
When I am not working on something math-related I’m probably trying out a science experiment with my three little ones, cooking something spicy (we love Indian food!), or running in a local Philly race (look towards the back of the pack . . . I’m quite slow).
