Dr. Jennifer Bay-Williams

Jennifer Bay-Williams is a mathematics teacher educator with a passion for making mathematics meaningful for every student.  She is nationally known for her numerous books and articles, and she is one of our own Kentucky mathematics educators!

Her books include Elementary and Middle School MathematicsTeaching Developmentally (now in its ninth edition); Teaching Student Centered Mathematics (not in its third edition); Math and LiteratureGrades 6-8; Mathematics Coaching; and On the Money, which is a financial literacy series for middle and high schools.  Her national efforts have recently focused on procedural fluency including basic fact fluency, including the recently released ASCD Quick Reference GuideGames and Tools for Addition Facts.

Her belief is that if we truly focus on all four components of fluency, we can achieve the vision of every student mathematically proficient.  She has worked with teachers, schools, and centers across Kentucky related to this goal.  Jennifer has also served on the NCTM Board of Directors, Association off Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) Board as president and secretary, and currently serves on the TODOSMathematics for All Board of Directors.
