Tatiana Shubin, co-founder of the Math Teachers’ Circle Network and a professor at San Jose State University, was honored with the 2017 Mary P. Dolciani Award at the Mathematical Association of America MathFest in Chicago in July. The Dolciani Award annually recognizes a pure or applied mathematician who is making a distinguished contribution to the mathematical education of K-16 students. Shubin has dedicated her life to bringing Math Circles to new communities, particularly indigenous populations. Her work developing the Navajo Math Circles and the Math Teachers’ Circle Network are just two of her distinguished contributions to mathematics education in the U.S.
