Tracy Johnston Zager

Tracy happily taught fourth grade in a public school in the Pacific Northwest for several years. When her family moved to New England, she gave up her classroom to work with preservice teachers and their in-service mentors, first in Boston, and then in Portland, Maine. After many years in adult education, Tracy began extensive field research for Becoming the Math Teacher You Wish You’d Had: Ideas and Strategies from Vibrant Classrooms (2017). After writing her book, Tracy began working as a math coach in an individual school, and then at the district level, as well as supporting schools and districts domestically and internationally. In 2021, Tracy and Graham Fletcher published the Building Fact Fluency Toolkits, which grew out of their work in schools. Tracy now splits her time between editing math professional development books for Stenhouse Publishers and working with the math coaches, teachers, and students of Portland Public Schools.
