Rachel McAnallen, Ph.D.

Rachel McAnallen, author of picture books that teach math and teacher of elementary online math classes

Known simply as Ms. Math to children across the country, Dr. Rachel McAnallen has devoted her life to sharing the joy and beauty of mathematics with learners of all ages. A professional educator for more than sixty years, she travels the globe teaching math at every grade level. In addition to her experience in the classroom, Rachel has served as a department chair, a school board member, and a high school administrator. She claims that the latter position is responsible for the majority of her gray hairs. She has a passion for teaching, reading fictional mystery novels, and making mathematical modular origami, though not always in that order. A lifelong learner, Rachel received her Ph.D. from the Neag School at age seventy-five. She approaches the world around her with a boundless curiosity and a playful sense of humor that is reflected in her teaching style. She believes that mathematics is a language to be spoken, a music to be heard, an art to be seen, and a dance to be performed. Rachel loves to dance.
