Mary Reid

Assistant Professor, Elementary Coordinator of the Master of Teaching Program

Mary Reid is an assistant professor in the Department of Curriculum, Teaching & Learning as well as an Elementary Coordinator in the Master of Teaching program. Mary’s research interests include math teacher education, math anxiety in the classroom, gender gaps in STEM, and building efficacy for math teaching.

Mary’s most recent study critically examines the gender and race gaps in math performance, specifically for learners who are female and of colour. Minority females are vastly under-represented in all STEM fields and Mary’s research attempts to uncover the barriers minority females face as math learners.
