Personal profile

Biography

Penelope is a staff member within the Faculty of Education, Monash University. Her research concerns students' and teachers' values associated with (dis)engagement in mathematics education. She has worked as a school teacher in Melbourne for nine years. Her objective is to research and implement innovative and creative mathematics teaching and learning strategies. Her passion is developing mathematics learning that ignites excitement in children. 

Penelope's PhD "The role of value alignment in engagement and (dis)engagement in mathematics learning" examined the students' values that support and inhibit their engagement in primary mathematics lessons and how the interaction between teachers' values expressed in classroom practice and students' values impact on (dis)engagement in primary mathematics learning.  The evidence from this study suggests that disengagement in mathematics learning is not a permanent state and teachers can adopt value alignment strategies to help their students re-engage with their mathematics learning.
