Biography

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. She has been a facilitator of the ANI training since 2012 when she became a LINCS national trainer for adult numeracy. She also works with LINCS to facilitate math and science face-to-face trainings and online PD offerings such as Open Educational Resources (OER) and Teaching Excellence in Adult Education (TEAL). Since 2016, Heidi has been a consultant for the SABES numeracy team where she facilitates trainings and works on course and curriculum development, including the Curriculum for Accelerated Math (CAM) and Curriculum for Adults Learning Math (CALM). She also facilitates the Adults Reaching Algebra Readiness (AR)2 institutes and EMPower Math Series trainings for TERC.
