Kathleen Bielak - Intervention Aide
Kathleen has a passion for mathematics education and is excited to be part of the Bowen team in the role of Mathematics Interventionist. Kathleen first became interested in mathematics in high school Algebra class. She studied physics and mathematics in college and earned her Master of Education and MA teacher certification at University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Kathleen has been fortunate to have a varied career, including space astronomy research, computer programming, instructional design, and education. Her favorite job by far is working with math learners. Kathleen is fascinated by how students learn math! Her goal is to make instruction personalized and fun and to help students build skills and confidence in their math learning. At home, her husband and two daughters share her love of math, and they all enjoy doing puzzles and playing games together. Kathleen looks forward to seeing you at Bowen!
