Gina Prowell, 
Math Specialist

Gina is an award-winning mathematics educator and teacher leader who believes that the spark of mathematical curiosity can be ignited at any time and that learning is a journey rather than a destination. She graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Connecticut College, where she was a two-time recipient of the Julia Wells Bower Prize for Distinction in Mathematics.  She earned her Master’s degree in Education from Avila University with a concentration in Curriculum and Instruction and is a Missouri-certified Mathematics 7-12 instructor. 

 

Gina has been honored with the distinction of Teacher of the Year for the Raytown School District in Missouri and has been a Teacher of the Year finalist for the Raymore-Peculiar School District, also in Missouri. Most recently, she was recognized as the first recipient of the annual Educator Appreciation Award at Parker School in Hawaii. During her 28-year career, she has taught a wide range of courses from

Algebra I to Calculus as well as Discrete Mathematics and Statistics. She is also a certified International Baccalaureate Diploma Program instructor. No matter the content she is working with, Gina strives to find creative ways to communicate abstract mathematical ideas so that students understand the ‘why’ behind them.

 

Aside from her love of math, Gina enjoys traveling, Pilates and Zumba, relaxing at the beach, and spending time with her family.  Her favorite word is ‘yet.’ (Ask her about it!)
