Center DirectorMonica Virgil, Center Director

Monica Virgil, an Atlanta native, was on track to becoming a college math professor until just a few years ago when she decided that after 12 years of perfecting her skills as a public school math and science teacher, she wanted to use her teaching expertise in the private sector. Armed with a bold vision and a tremendous passion for math education, she followed her dream to combine education and leadership. As a result, in September 2012 she opened Montgomery’s first Mathnasium, a nationwide franchise of learning centers that helps students better understand math through personalized learning programs.

Her philosophy is simple, "true learning happens when students can confidently make the connections between math and the real world around them." And her ultimate goal is to not only make a positive impact on the students she comes in contact with, but she aims to change the world by helping students succeed at becoming the world's finest mathematicians.  Monica prides herself on engaging her students by making learning fun with songs, projects, and hands-on learning activities. Her students say she is “crazy about math!” But she just believes in celebrating academic achievement and excellence as much as one celebrates sports.

This soccer mom of an eight year old son, mother of a college freshman daughter and wife of an Air Force officer, holds a Bachelor's of Arts degree in middle grades science and mathematics from Breneau University and a Masters of Arts in secondary mathematics education from Western Governors University. Monica makes frequent appearances on WSFA's Alabama Live Countdown to College segment and is an Expert contributor to Potential magazine’s "Ask the Expert" column. Lastly, one of the highlights of her career was being selected as a speaker at Western Governors University’s 2013 winter commencement ceremony.
