Jan Szymaszek recently retired after working as a third-grade teacher at the Smith College Campus School in Northampton, Massachusetts, which is the laboratory school for the Smith College Department of Education and Child Study. In addition to working with college interns and elementary students for over thirty years at the Campus School, Szymaszek has also been involved with mathematics education in the wider community for many years. She is an experienced facilitator of several math seminars at Mount Holyoke College and in her local district and has contributed to various NSF projects involving teacher-written cases and looking closely at student thinking.

When she’s not teaching, Szymaszek enjoys spending summers camping along the coasts of New England and North Carolina, visiting one son and his family in Seattle, Washington, and the other son who lives in southern Virginia, and also relaxing in her backyard with a great book in hand.
