Kent Haines is a middle school math teacher who lives outside Birmingham, Alabama. He received his Master's in Education from the University of Pennsylvania. Kent is a 2016 Heinemann Fellow and has helped develop curriculum for A+ College Ready and Mathalicious.

As a parent of three young kids, Kent discovered that classic games such as Sorry and Connect Four provided wonderful opportunities for mathematical conversations with his kids. Since that time, he has been eagerly reading research on how young children learn through play. He's excited to share what he's learned, and to hear from you about the conversations you've been having with your kids. Share your stories in the comments!
