Dr. Rochelle Gutierrez

Dr. Rochelle Gutiérrez is a professor of Mathematics Education here at UIUC. Her research interrogates the unearned privilege that mathematics holds in society and the roles that race, class, language, and gender play in teaching/learning mathematics so as to open up new possible relationships between humans, mathematics/science, and the planet. For the past 25 years, she has been deeply and passionately invested in supporting teachers of mathematics and science to navigate the politics of their local work environments. Her work on Rehumanizing Mathematics and creative insubordination has been used in K-12 settings and university/college mathematics and science departments in the US and beyond.
