Before Joining the Dana Center
Tammi was a preparatory and academic mathematics faculty member for over 13 years at a two-year Hispanic-serving institution, where she designed and taught corequisite courses in mathematics for over ten years. During that time, she participated in developing and authoring her institution’s mathematics co-requisite curriculums, co-chaired the college's Mathematics Research & Development team, and proudly served as the Texas State Teachers Association-Aspiring Educators (TSTA-AE) club advisor. Tammi’s research sought to examine corequisite mathematics students' intrinsic motivation.
