Outreach Managers in British Columbia

Liz Barrett
Liz Barrett - Outreach ManagerLiz landed in Toronto in 2003 from South Africa where she had been teaching for many years. Moving to a village in Whistler, British Columbia was how Liz came across a First Nations Community in Mount Currie that ended up shaping her life in Canada. It was at this school that she first introduced JUMP Math in BC and she volunteered in those early days to support John Mighton as he started the charity. Liz travels extensively across Canada and the USA with her love working with teachers and parents to support them in teaching math well. John’s book, The Myth of Ability resonated with Liz, as in her career she have seen first-hand the incredible power of praise, combined with developing children’s self confidence so that they become resilient learners unafraid of taking chances or making mistakes. Liz’s favourite number is 13! Contact Liz.
