Interviewer: What is your name?

Interviewee:  Pam Garner

Interviewer: What is your position at CSA Education?

Interviewee: Executive Director

Interviewer: What does that position entail?

Interviewee: I have my nose in just about everything at CSA. I help with business development. I help with determining growth and where the growth should be. I also oversee the math department and played a direct role in adding to that department. I actually came from a company that grew from CSA’s size to about ten times that, so I want to use those experiences—good and bad—to help CSA grow!

Interviewer: How did you become a part of CSA?

Interviewee: A recruiter. I had just decided I didn’t want to work anymore, but I was contacted by a recruiter who said “I actually have a company I think you’d love working with.” I spoke with them, ended up loving them, and signed on.

Interviewer: What is the best part of your job?

Interviewee:  Honestly, getting to work with the different people here, and it’s exciting to help a company as good as CSA Education grow. 

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

Interviewee:  I have a varied background of experience. From being with a major publisher, to teaching for 15 years to working at vendors, I can see projects from everybody’s angle. 

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

Interviewee: Mine is more specific to math. I wish they started exposing kids to negative numbers at an earlier age. Waiting for exposure at a later age makes it even more difficult to help them understand. They don’t need to do operations with negative numbers, just know they exist, and how all numbers, whether positive or negative, represent a distance from zero.

Interviewer: What are three interesting facts about you?

Interviewee: I have three degrees, one in art, one in math, and one in history. I love to ride horses. My favorite way to ride a horse is in an open field, running as hard as you can, and it jumps a bush that is in its way, [and you get] that feeling of weightlessness. I would have loved to have been an interior designer.
