Interviewer: What is your name?

Neelam: Neelam Kulkarni

Interviewer: What is your position at CSA?

Neelam: Senior Editor, Math

Interviewer: What does that position entail?

Neelam: I help manage projects in the Math department by coordinating resources for our freelance writers and editors, and work to make sure we deliver high-quality materials to our clients’ specifications.   

Interviewer: How did you become a part of CSA?

Neelam: I had worked on projects with Karen Veit, Emily Baier, and Pam Garner in the past, so when projects became available at CSA, I signed on as a freelancer. First, I freelanced as a writer, and then as a content lead. The Senior Editor role recently became available, so I jumped at the chance to join the team!

Interviewer: What is the best part of your job?

Neelam: My relationships with my team and coworkers. Even though we are spread across the country, I do not feel lonely working from home. I also enjoy fostering relationships with our freelance writers and editors. It helps that I still love to write after all these years in the industry, so I find the work to be fun.

Interviewer: What do you wish people knew about your work at CSA?

Neelam: We truly care about our clients and strive to deliver the best products for them.

Interviewer: What do you wish schools focused on more in terms of education and why? 

Neelam: In many respects, I wish schools focused more on basics. Students should be given time to build a solid foundation before layering on complicated problem-solving tasks. This would apply to core subjects as well as social and emotional skills. 

Interviewer: What are three interesting facts about you?

Neelam: I have three teenage daughters (and consequently, a lot of gray hair!). I enjoy baking and like to think I make a pretty mean cheesecake. I have an extensive refrigerator magnet collection because I collect magnets from all the places I’ve traveled.
