My name is Kate Sidlo and I teach 9th grade algebra at Community of Peace Academy Charter School in Saint Paul, MN. I have been teaching at Community of Peace for four years. I am passionate about math, technology, education, ultimate frisbee, and camping. I try to bring my passions into the classroom and help students share theirs as well. I am a firm believer in project based assessments, second chances, and laughter.
I'm the Founder and co-creator of Sophia and I love to create new things. I have a deep passion for education and technology, and I spend a lot of time thinking about how they could come together more effectively. I earned my bachelor's degree in U.S. History from the University of Wisconsin and my MBA from the University of Minnesota. I'm also the proud father of three daughters who give me a lot of great feedback on how to improve Sophia. I hope you'll send me your thoughts and ideas about Sophia. You can also feel free to share your thoughts on education, technology, American history (my personal passions are presidential and immigration history), music, songwriting, or baseball. I’d love to hear from you. - Don
