Lisa Lunney Borden is an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. She teaches mostly mathematics education courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level. She began her career teaching grades 7-12 mathematics at We’koqma’q First Nation Secondary School, a Mi’kmaw community-run school. She credits her students and the Mi’kmaw community for inspiring her to think differently about mathematics education. She is most interested in examining strategies to transform mathematics education for Aboriginal students with a focus on equity, diversity, and the inclusion of multiple worldviews. Lisa also helps to coordinate an on-going project called “Show Me Your Math” that invites Aboriginal children in Atlantic Canada to explore the mathematics all around them.
