Director: Allison Pacelli
I came in hating math. I left liking it… Professor Pacelli made it easy and even enjoyable!
She genuinely wanted people to learn the material and enjoy math. Her enthusiasm about math was contagious…I have never been a math person and have always been very intimidated by math…but Prof. Pacelli helped change that.

[He] makes math so fun to learn and has really motivated me to do my best and has taught me well.
Mr. Gold has done something that few people have ever done. That is to get me to like math. After this year I no longer dread going to math class. Mr. Gold makes it fun and interesting to learn. My grades have vastly improved from last year. He is very enthusiastic.
Thanks so much for such a fun week. I’ve never had so much fun and learned so much math at the same time.
