Dr. Muhich is an expert consultant for ACUE’s module

Muhich has twenty-five years’ expertise as a post-secondary educator focused on Mathematics education reform and improving student outcomes at two-year colleges. After eighteen years as a Mathematics instructor at Seattle Central College, she began a classroom hiatus by leading Seattle Central College’s Achieving the Dream initiative. In 2010, Muhich joined the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching Pathways initiative. There she collaborated with leading social psychologists to develop Productive Persistence, a research-based initiative to promote productive mindsets and use of effective learning strategies. While at the Carnegie, she also led the development and national launch of Quantway, a non-STEM quantitative reasoning Mathematics pathway.

Upon returning to the Seattle Colleges in 2013, Muhich worked with Mathematics faculty to create pathways that better aligned with students’ programs of study. In addition, she has been providing professional development for faculty and staff to integrate productive persistence activities and improvement science methodologies into classrooms and program areas. Most recently, Muhich has returned to the Mathematics classroom where she enjoys helping students meet their academic goals.

Jane earned her BS in Applied Mathematics from UCLA. She holds an MEd in Curriculum and Instruction, with an emphasis on Mathematics Education and adult learning, from the University of Washington.
