Dr. Dubitsky has been a member of the Graduate School at Bank Street College for more than 30 years, and has worked extensively in public and private schools to help teachers build their capacity to teach mathematics.
One of her major focuses is the use of technology in education, and especially how it can be used for online education. Recently she taught two short mathematics courses online. Dr. Dubitsky has worked with technology since the Bank Street College began to use computers with children in 1980, playing a key role in the Center for Children and Technology housed at Bank Street from 1980 to the early 90’s. She was Chair of Computer Programs in the Graduate School. Previously, she worked for many years as a public school teacher in grades 4 through 6, and went on to become a middle school math teacher and math coordinator.
