Jeannette Garcia Coppersmith
The Prescotts Proctor
I was born and raised in the Highland Park and Eagle Rock neighborhoods of Los Angeles, California, and am a proud public-school alumna of the Los Angeles Unified School District. I earned my B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley. I'm currently a doctoral student studying education as a Graduate Prize Fellow at Harvard University. My concentration is human development, learning, and teaching. I proudly serve as vice president of Comunidad Latinx. My research interests include mathematics education reform, classroom discourse and math talk, algebra and algebraic thinking, teacher and student affect and beliefs, and institutional change. In my free time, I enjoy dinner parties with friends and family, going on runs, painting, playing fetch with my dogs, and exploring new places.
