Do you ever feel helpless when you step into your classroom to teach?
Watching your students struggle to grasp math concepts doesn’t get easier. You keep finding that so many of your students are lacking the foundational skills needed to attain grade level mastery. So now you’re trying to fill in those holes while also teaching grade level concepts.
Your administration tells you to, "just figure it out" or "do what's best for the kids" without any concrete resources or guidance. And so you do...try to figure it out.
But, it’s not that easy to do on your own.
Let’s paint a different picture of math class for students who struggle…
Students consistently engage with yourself and their classmates during lessons
Students finally stop giving up on math problems when they get too difficult… and themselves as mathematicians
Students talk and participate during class and actually answer your questions
Because it’s not just about the students, it’s also about YOU…
✖ You’re feeling frustrated and demoralized because you thought the lesson went well, but then the majority of students fail your test
✖ It’s like pulling teeth to get students to talk in class and it’s just so exhausting
✖ You’re beginning to wonder if you should just leave teaching all together because it’s downright disheartening to believe in your students as much as you do and just watch them sit passively with no motivation at all
These teachers applied the strategies from MEA in their classrooms and they have never been the same...
The secret is in the evidence based 5 part framework called the C.A.R.E.S Math Achievement Framework™ - exclusive to Math Engagement Academy.
And when you apply these 5 qualities in your classroom, this success is possible for YOU and your students too

Who am I to be teaching this?
Hey, I’m Juliana!
As a math intervention and algebra 1 teacher and co-teacher myself, I get it.
I understand what it feels like to teach a class full of students who have never seen success in the math classroom. Students who were failed by the system. Students who lack foundational knowledge to see the success they deserve.
I too have felt frustrated and defeated when
- Students don't come to class
- Students don't talk in class (it's like pulling teeth to get them to speak)
- Students keep failing math class in such large numbers, and if we’re being honest, especially our Black and Brown students
I also know how alone and solitary teaching the challenging math class can be with Administrators who tell me to, "just figure it out" or "do what's best for the kids" without any concrete resources or guidance.
Since leaving my own classroom in 2018 I've been hired by 50+ schools and state Departments of Education to provide effective professional development for secondary math teachers to increase student engagement and achievement and am an in demand presenter at national conferences like NCTM and ASCD.
It’s my passion for students who struggle with math that has led me to create the Math Engagement Academy, a digital course and collaborative community for grade 6-12 educators who teach students who struggle with mathematics.I'M READY TO JOIN YOU IN MEA!
Hear from Melanie about her experience in MEA...
Teaching math to students who struggle doesn’t need to be a struggle.
If you follow a proven structure, you will get more “aha math moments” with your students… no matter how many times they’ve failed math before having you.Heck yes, I need this!
This course is perfect for you if…
✔️ You’re a math teacher, co-teacher, special ed teacher, or math interventionist for grades 6-12
✔️ You want students to actively participate and engage in your daily lessons
✔️ You want to provide a safe space for your students to finally succeed at math and grow their math confidence
How do I know this will work for my classroom?
What makes your course and PD different from others?
I’m living on a teacher’s salary...do you offer any payment plans?
What if I'm unhappy? Do you offer refunds?
Can my school pay with a Purchase Order (PO)?
Is this an intervention curriculum or online student program?
How do I get access to all the course content?
How much time will I be expected to spend on this course?
Will this certification count towards my state’s professional development?
What are your terms and conditions?
I have more questions. Who can I contact?
Your students deserve math success…
I know you’re tired of feeling helpless as you watch student after student fail at math. You’re ready to try something new and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to help your students overcome their struggles.
This course may or may not be for you...that’s OK if it isn’t. The fact that you’re here and looking for answers speaks volumes about the kind of teacher you are. You’re dedicated to giving every student who enters your classroom the best education possible.
And I’m dedicated to making that easier for you.
