Alice Levine

Family Literacy and Math Coordinator at Boston Excels and The Home for Little Wanderers, Boston, MA

Alice Levine is Family Literacy and Math Coordinator for Boston Excels and The Home for Little Wanderers. In her program, Alice focuses on helping parents of populations traditionally left out of higher mathematics to develop their own skills, confidence and enthusiasm for math. Helping parents develop higher level math skills enables them to better support their children’s math learning. The program generated such a positive response that Alice formed Active In Math (AIM), a parent group designed to engage large numbers of families in innovative math activities. These activities require parents and children to work together to solve fun and engaging problems over the course of three weeks.
