Eric Cordero-Siy

Clinical Assistant Professor

Dr. Eric Cordero-Siy (last syllable is pronounced “sea,” like the body of water) is a clinical assistant professor in the Mathematics Education program at Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development. His work supports elementary teachers in developing lessons that support mathematical sense-making, particularly with the use of drawings and other informal representations. To do this, he, along with other researchers and school partners, conducted job-embedded, adaptive professional development that focuses on in-the-moment decision making to experiment with teacher-driven practices.

Alongside this, Dr. Cordero-Siy supports teachers in both professional development and his own teaching to enact equitable, justice-oriented mathematics teaching practices. He is also working on liberatory practices that confront power and oppression in ways educational research is conducted. To do this, he consistently works on humanizing students, teachers, and communities in his work.

Dr. Cordero-Siy is a former high school mathematics teacher with experience teaching in New York, Georgia, and the Philippines.
