Hi there! My name is Shana McKay and I started my teaching career in Massachusetts public schools in 2004. I'm certified to to teach math grades 1-12, biology grades 8-12 and students with moderate disabilities, and have taught in both the general and special education setting.

My bachelor's degree is from UMass Amherst in Environmental Science, and I have a master's degree in Mathematics for Teaching from Harvard Extension School.

My main blog scaffoldedmath.com came into existence around 2013, and it's where I like to share math teaching ideas. I started this website shopscaffoldedmath.com in 2022 so that I could begin processing school purchase orders and as a place to house my Consumer Math Curriculum.
