Marc Husband, PhD

Assistant Professor
Xavier Hall

Dr. Marc Husband earned his Ph.D. in 2019 from York University. Marc views his research and teaching as related and reciprocal. He taught elementary mathematics for 20 + years in several roles — elementary school teacher, math coach, professional development instructor for in-service teachers, and seconded faculty instructor for pre-service teachers. Broadly, Marc’s research is situated in the field of mathematics education. More specifically, his classroom-based research investigates how teachers elicit and use student ideas as a resource for learning mathematics in a variety of contexts including: elementary school classrooms, teacher education courses, and professional learning settings. Current and recent projects include: elementary teachers’ conceptions of mental mathematics; the potential for using number talks to promote equity; eliciting and documenting students’ mental math ideas: investigating ways to make math visible and visual.
