  • Shockey, Tod L


  • In 1991 Shockey accepted his first opportunity to work as a mathematics educator in a Tribal school in the United States. That experience immediately revealed that he was not prepared for working in a community of which he was not a member. Today he works in higher education with a focus on preparing secondary mathematics teachers, who too are not prepared to work in communities of which they are not a member. Shockey’s presentation reveals his story of this professional journey as a mathematics educator privileged to work with Native friends.
