A Mathematics Instructor and Department Chair, Tammi Marshall has been at Cuyamaca College since 1997. In 2010, Tammi and her colleagues began working with the California Acceleration Project (CAP) to redesign Cuyamaca’s developmental math sequence, culminating in the launch of Cuyamaca’s Math Pathway program in 2016. Since then not only does every first-time student have access to transfer-level math, the department has increased completion of transferable math among students who would previously have been designated “underprepared.” Tammi also serves as one of the CAP math coaches, is a facilitator for the Dana Center’s Math Pathways, and has presented to college and university audiences in California and nationally. Tammi’s passion for all students realizing their dreams is taking shape and the Math Department at Cuyamaca College has worked hard to make this happen. Tammi holds a master’s degree in Math Education and a doctorate in Educational Leadership from San Diego State University.
