Doctoral Student


Anthony Muro Villa III is a doctoral candidate in mathematics education within the Curriculum and Teacher Education PhD program. He earned a BS and an MS from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in mathematics. Prior to attending Stanford, he taught secondary mathematics for eleven years at Foothill Technology High School in Ventura, CA. At Stanford, he teaches several courses for teacher candidates in the Stanford Teacher Education Program (STEP). Additionally, through CSET, he participates in a research-practice partnership to prepare middle school mathematics teachers to conduct their own professional development. His own current research examines how classroom conditions allow or deny students the opportunities to enact mathematical practices around argumentation, sense-making, perseverance, and abstract thinking.
