Formerly a classroom teacher, district math teacher specialist, and University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) instructor, Kaplinsky now serves as Teacher Specialist in Mathematics for Downey Unified School District and Math Coach for a California Math and Science Partnership (CaMSP) grant. He believes teachers must "have rigorous expectations for how students should be able to express their math knowledge, as described in the CCSS for Mathematical Practice, incorporate problem-based learning as part of a balanced set of instructional strategies, increase engagement by using perplexing problems as often as possible." His consulting practice also offers CCSS integration, teacher questioning, lesson study, technology integration, and grant writing services.|
