Lizzy Hull Barnes, M.Ed, is the Supervisor of Mathematics and Computer Science at San Francisco Unified School District. She has taught math to preschool through adults, and has supported fellow teachers and coaches in San Francisco.

Hull Barnes has presented SFUSD’s work in multiple venues including the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, the Council of Great City Schools, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the California Math Council (CMC), and the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM). She has published articles in EdSource and NCTM’s Catalyzing Change. She has also supported Stanford workshops on research practitioner partnerships with Professor Hilda Borko. Hull Barnes received her Masters degree in Education, with an emphasis on Early Childhood, from Mills College in Oakland, and her Administrative credential from the Leadership Support Program (LSP) at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Education.
