Allyson Rohrbach has been a mathematics educator, coach, and leader for the past fifteen years and is currently a Math Coach with The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools. Earlier in her career, she served as Middle School Math Coordinator at The Packer Collegiate Institute in New York City and as a mathematics teacher at Louisville High School and in the Kern High School District in California. As an educational leader, she has extensive experience analyzing and improving curricula to ensure that strong conceptual understandings and cohesive vertical progressions exist throughout grades and supporting teachers in improving their instruction in the classroom.
Allyson earned her undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Economics from the University of California at Los Angeles and her Masters in Education from California State University at Northridge. Allyson started her career in education after observing several teacher-driven, lecture-based mathematics classes, which inspired her to make a difference in the way students learn mathematics. She remains determined to engage students in discourse about the “why” of mathematics more than the “how.” She is dedicated to addressing equity in education by empowering both teachers and students to become more confident mathematical thinkers and learners. Allyson is passionate about helping teachers implement an instructional approach that allows students to see mathematics everywhere.
