The Great Mathnasium Gratitude List!

Nov 25, 2015

As we get ready to take some time off work and gather with friends and family this Thanksgiving, we’d like to take a minute to share what we’re thankful for here at Mathnasium HQ. Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving full of infinite love, laughter, and gratitude!

A few BIG privileges I’m thankful for…

  • The privilege of living in North America. At peace.
  • The privilege of making a difference. At work.
  • The privilege of a mission that inspires. At last.
  • The privilege of working with children. At length.
  • The privilege of working with great people. At all times.

Wishing you a Thanksgiving holiday free from any worry. At all!

-       Peter Markovitz, CEO


I am thankful for the continued opportunity to work with an exceptional team of people to change the lives of children everyday.  I am thankful for being an American and the great individuals who sacrifice every day to keep our country free.  I am thankful for my family ,especially my husband and son--and that we are all happy and healthy.

- Jennifer Nicholls, Director of Education


I’m grateful to have married a woman who, after 24 years of marriage, still makes me feel butterflies whenever I hear her car pull into our driveway. I’m also deeply grateful for the people in my life who inspire me to be a better person.

-       John Moyer, Executive Director, Franchise Development


I’m grateful for sincere humility and humanity. The world is not as big as it used to be—we are all connected, much like a large extended family! Also, I’m truly thankful for Wi-Fi!

- Kisha Machen, Human Resources Manager



Today, I am grateful for: 

  • The fact that I live in relative safety; that my neighborhood has been neither a war zone nor the site of a terror attack.
  • Waze, podcasts and books on tape for making my commute as short and enjoyable as possible.
  • Weather that is leaning slightly towards fall. I love clear cool days.
  • Deep friendships with people who know me well and love me still. It's quite a gift.
  • My teenage daughter who calls me her best friend and lets me look at her Instagram.
  • Bún Thịt NÆ°á»›ng, Japanese chicken cutlet curry, and good ol’ American fries… just because they’re tasty.
  • The fact that, as a culture, we set aside a day to just be grateful, to give thanks for all have and all we are to one another. It's a very good thing.

-        Jacqueline Macauley, Franchise Support Coordinator


I’m thankful for my outstanding coworkers who make working at Mathnasium fun and enjoyable—even when things get tough.

- Jonathan Greene, Legal & Compliance Manager 


I am thankful for being surrounded by people who accept me as the nerdy dancing mathematician that I am.

-        Kristain Steinert, Curriculum Developer


I am grateful for my parents’ safety—they live overseas. I’m also grateful for my wonderful colleagues—especially my team! Go Accounting!

-        Jennifer Callahan, Accounting Manager 


This Thanksgiving, I’m immensely grateful for a career where having fun and being creative are essentially imperatives. I’m grateful for the luxuries of free expression and free will, a yoga practice that keeps me balanced and sane, my very colorful and exciting life path … and most of all, the blessings and support I receive from my friends and colleagues. Oh, and cat videos on YouTube!

-        Damaris Candano, Marketing Communications Coordinator
