Heidi Schuler-Jones has worked in adult education since 2006. She participated in the pilot program of the Adult Numeracy Instruction – Professional Development (ANI-PD) in Georgia in 2010 and immediately found its techniques, methodologies, and research-based resources to be of tremendous value to her teaching and to the variety of students she saw daily. Heidi has facilitated many PD trainings for TERC, including EMPower and Adults Reaching Algebra Readiness (AR)2 institutes, and has worked on course and curriculum development, including the Curriculum for Adults Learning Math (CALM). Heidi also is a LINCS national trainer for math and numeracy and serves as President-Elect of the Adult Numeracy Network. In 2021, she succeeded Donna Curry as the Director of the Adult Numeracy Center at TERC.
