Roeper Alumna, Melissa (Missy) Sommerfeld Gresalfi ’95 was recently interviewed for the “Ask the Expert” feature in the Roeper Review, an international, quarterly journal that publishes scholarly articles about all dimensions of gifted education.
Missy is an associate professor in Mathematics Education and the Learning Sciences at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College, and an expert in her field. In her interview, she answers questions specific to her work, as well as how she developed the skills that have contributed to her success (Spoiler Alert – Her disposition towards learning and engaging the world stems back to her experiences at Roeper!).
