About LaDawn

LaDawn is a life longer learner, educator, environmentalist and youth advocate. Born and raised in Boston she stayed close to home after graduating from the Boston Public Schools to attend the University of Massachusetts, Lesley College and Cambridge College respectively for instruction in Environmental Justice, STEMs Teaching and Learning and Public Policy. Starting her formal career at Massachusetts’s Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Quality Division advocating for environmentally sound air-quality practices she was often invited to talk about being a black scientist in the local schools. Chemistry! From that point Ms. Strickland’s passion and career in education, science, technology, mathematics and engineering was bonded.

For over a decade LaDawn has been teaching, creating and managing in a range of community institutions including schools (Public, Private and Charter). Including but not limited to successfully teaching Math and Science, grades 4 thru 9, to a variety of learners, most recently at the English High School and Young Achievers Mathematics & Science School in Boston. Given all this experience she has developed into a regional STEMs leader designing, implementing and assessing, curriculum and teacher training programs across Massachusetts advocating for equity-driven public policy reform and alternative education options. This year she wants to improve the math learning experience for your child. She firmly believes that for our students to graduate successfully and participate in the plethora of STEM career fields booming here in the Northeast, we must increase a focus on mathematics education that correct misunderstandings commonly developed over the years accelerate the pace of learning from concrete to abstract, build self-esteem and decrease math anxiety, critical for all learners to feel confidant when learning.
