Co-Founder, Teacher, Learner, and Educational Strategist
John Antonetti has visited thousands of classrooms throughout North America in an effort to answer the question, “What truly engages learners intellectually and emotionally?” He has taught AP Chemistry and kindergarten and most grades in between in his home state of Arkansas and now works with schools across the country and Canada on student engagement, writing, rigor and relevance, and high–yield best practices.
Antonetti has written Writing as a Measure and Model of Thinking and co-authored the best-seller 17,000 Classroom Visits Can’t Be Wrong: Strategies That Engage Students, Promote Active Learning and Boost Achievement. He is currently working with colleagues on a book about the power of technology to engage learners.
At LONG + LIVE + MATH: The National Institute, Antonetti will talk about engaging learners to master more content and develop deeper skill sets. He’ll also address how to encourage students to articulate their own thinking, which will lead to better problem-solving in the classroom and beyond. Using the latest cognitive research, Antonetti will lead a humorous, interactive session that integrates strategy, thinking, and engagement in a three-dimensional approach to teaching that you’ll be excited to try in your own classroom.

Through keynote addresses delivered to hundreds of educators each year, Sandy combines her classroom expertise and content knowledge to inspire them to rethink their approach to learning as they seek to maximize student growth. You will often hear her challenge audiences with questions like, "What do students believe you think is most important?” and "If students could buy tickets for your classroom, would they?"
Most importantly, Sandy recognizes and celebrates teachers' hard work every day. She believes that all students can become confident math learners and that passion drives everything she does.
Sandy is a natural storyteller and can relate almost anything in math education to lessons she learned as a kid helping her father deliver milk.
