Math Literacy Update – August 2022

Hello! My name is Darian, I am the new Math Literacy Coordinator here at PALS. My background is in finance, in banking as well as at not-for-profits. I love talking to people about money and math literacy, and I am excited to be working at such an important organization as PALS.

I am an Edmontonian through and through, I even love winter! I recently moved to Millwoods with my fiancé and our three cats. I would love to hear from you, even if you are just stopping in to say hi. I can be a great resource if you are looking for assistance with math, anywhere from adding up grocery budgets to prepping for exams! I look forward to working with you.
