Head Teacher, 5th and 6th Grade Math and Science
Sylvia Glassco grew up a nature-loving kid who played lots of math games, and is happy to still be pursuing those passions at Ancona. She earned a BS in Computer Science from Yale University and a MEd from the University of Illinois, Chicago. She has been on the 5th/6th team at Ancona since moving to Hyde Park in 2008. Sylvia has presented students’ work on Social Justice and Proof at national conferences and led professional development at and outside Ancona. She is the author of three books of math curriculum in Cathy Fosnot’s Contexts for Learning Mathematics series and is working on several more as the writing coordinator for the curriculum. Sylvia, her wife, and their son spend as much time as possible outdoors at their garden and in the woods.
