Who is Toni?

Antonia “Toni” Cameron is the co-founder and CEO of reimaginED teaching, a coaching community devoted to transforming teaching and learning in education. Toni’s current interests are focused on revitalizing early childhood math learning as well as finding ways to develop transformative feedback cultures in schools. As part of this work, she is facilitating learning communities focused on (1) the role of the principal in providing effective feedback; (2) the power of the teacher-student conference (helping teachers develop ways of conferring with students to allow for productive struggle); and, (3) the role of coaching in developing teacher leadership and leadership networks.

Toni’s latest work on math routines — Early Childhood Math Routines: Empowering Young Minds to Think — was published by Stenhouse Publishers in April 2020. A prior publication (Heinemann Publishers), Agents of Change: How Content Coaching Transforms Teaching, was co-authored with Lucy West. This seminal text is used nationally as a tool to mentor coaches and other school leaders.
Toni’s previous work was as CEO of a renowned coaching organization, Metamorphosis Teaching Learning Communities and also as Co-Director of Mathematics in the City (MitC), a national center for professional development housed at the City College of the City University New York. As co-principal investigator of an NSF-funded project, Toni co-authored the fifteen facilitator-guides that were part of the Young Mathematicians at Work CD-ROMs. In addition, she co-authored two units (“Games” and “Muffles’ Truffles”) in the curriculum, Contexts for Learning published by Heinemann Publishers.

Antonia Cameron is in demand as a coach of coaches and has worked with her educational organizations in the USA, Canada, and Europe. She has presented nationally and internationally at such conferences as NCSM, NCTM, AMTE, NSDC and ICME.
