Paul Post, Owner and Center Director
Hello! I'm Paul Post, the Owner and Center Director of Mathnasium of Oak Creek. I have a B.S. in Industrial Engineering from UW-Madison. Before opening this center, I was the Center Director at Mathnasium of Wauwatosa, where I saw firsthand the remarkable growth in skills and confidence that are possible via the Mathnasium program.
I have worked in consulting, non-profits, and was previously co-owner of a healthcare data quality management technology startup. I am married, with one elementary-aged daughter (also a Mathnasium student!). When our daughter started kindergarten, I spent a couple years as a stay-at-home dad and became heavily involved in the PTA at her school. In 2017, I helped our PTA win a Math Night grant from National PTA and a company I had never heard of before: Mathnasium. Our first math night was the most successful family-engagement activity in our school's history and led to me being invited to speak at the National PTA Convention that year. When the opportunity to take on a Center Director role at Mathnasium in 2019 arose, I was intrigued, and my Mathnasium journey began.
I look forward to supporting the Oak Creek schools and community, meeting your children and unlocking their full math potential!
