Sara Rezvi
Sci-Fi Futures:Perspectives on Math Teachers’ Prep for Social Justice

Sara (she/they) will help us to challenge our own thinking as she talks about mathematics, joyfulness, social justice, and more. Sara is a doctoral candidate at UIC, a former high school mathematics teacher, and the program director for the Math Circles of Chicago (MC2). The work she does with MC2 has allowed for the rapid expansion of the program to serve over 2000 students as of 2023, making it one of the largest math circles in the country. Sara’s research explores the intersections of veteran and pre-service teachers who work from a critical mathematics orientation. Working in community with other scholars, they have published in research journals including the Journal of Urban Mathematics Education [JUME]. Sara holds a Masters in Education and a Bachelors of Arts in Mathematics from the University of Chicago. They are also the winner of the 2019 Mary Bialas Prize, awarded to UIC students who demonstrate a strong commitment to issues impacting women and children.
