Meet our Team
Alison Frisella (they/them) is a 2019 CATA Alum, joining us this fall as a math paraprofessional. They are currently a sophomore at Lesley University, where they study Political Science and Math Studies. While they currently plan to pursue a career in politics, they've always loved teaching math and are excited to be returning to CATA to do so this year!
As their capstone project at CATA, they studied the ways in which students struggle to learn math in high school and developed a protocol to make math education more accessible and beneficial for students, which they implemented as a course assistant for one of our math classes during their senior year. In returning to CATA, Alison will continue to use these methods of teaching to make sure all of our students are able to learn math in a way that is engaging and accessible for them.
In their time as a student at CATA, some of Alison's favorite classes were Comedic Writing Workshop, Race and Gender in Art, and Modern Problems.
