Jennifer Sanchez, Center Director/Owner
Jen has a BA in psychology and a MBA in marketing. She tutored math in high school and college, previously owned a professional organizing company, coached two youth sports teams for 11 seasons and since 2008, has volunteered & fundraised at three Prosper schools and the Prosper Education Foundation. She was named Prosper's Person of the Year 2013 by Prosper MagazineTM and she was one of 15 Texans to receive the Texas Education Agency's Heroes for Children award from the State Board of Education in 2015. She is also known to local kids as the Box Tops Lady and was given the 2017 Mathnasium Eight Success Factors Award (Parent Relationships), the 2018 Mathnasium Voice of the Customer award/Top 3 Net Promoter Score, Prosper High School's 2018 Community Award and the 2019 Mathnasium Voice of the Customer award/Top Net Promoter Score.
Why does Jen love Mathnasium? "I have always loved math, but my relationship with it wasn't always positive. By 5th grade, it was determined I was ahead in math, so I sat alone in the corner with my own math book, separated from the class. Later, I walked with a small group from the middle school to the high school for math classes and then back to our school to finish the day. While I appreciated that my math needs were satisfied, I was really uncomfortable to be pulled from the larger group and very aware that most people saw me as different. That doesn't do a lot for a young teen's confidence, which affected my attitude and approach to other areas in my life. It took years to realize that every kid is different (and that's ok!), needs encouragement when they fail, should be taught to recognize opportunities, deserves praise and rewards along the way and should be recognized when each succeeds. That is not to say they should be afraid to try or be protected from disappointment, but I understand the value of 'teachable moments' and the inevitable rush of pride when challenges are identified, hard work is applied and goals are achieved.
Mathnasium of Prosper will do exactly that for our children. My team and I focus on the needs of the child in front of us. Many times, a child feels like the only one in the room (or in the family) who doesn't 'get it,' and is discouraged from asking questions. Often they can't relate to offered help at home because they don't want to listen to the way their parents learned math and it sounds nothing like what happened in the classroom. The result: frustration & confidence problems. This can lead to lack of motivation and productivity, issues with self-esteem and troubled relationships. Homework becomes stressful, test-taking is painful, grades suffer and nobody is happy. There is also the child who cannot get enough material, doesn't feel challenged, searches for options, gets into trouble simply out of curiosity and untapped energy and then utters every parent's favorite phrase, 'I'm bored!'
We can address all of this at Mathnasium of Prosper through our assessment process and use of the Mathnasium MethodTM and curriculum. I am confident that every child in our center will leave informed, encouraged, motivated and renewed. Imagine what a kid can do with that kind of confidence, in all areas of life. The possibilities are endless."
