Dr. Jessica Vialva started her teaching career as a public high school teacher in Connecticut, followed by her teaching within CUNY as a Continuing Education Teacher and as an adjunct at Bronx Community College and LaGuardia Community College. She also taught mathematics as an adjunct at Norwalk Community College and Rutgers University.  Dr. Vialva’s research stems from her experience in classrooms, where she encountered many students being held back from pursuing their degrees due to being inadequately prepared to handle college mathematics courses. Her current research is focused on pedagogical practices and curriculum reforms implemented within secondary and higher education that helps to lessen mathematics anxiety and improve learning.  Her published works are assessments associated with Mathematical Modeling in handbooks published by the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications.
