Amanda Gryzkewicz Gloyer
Founder & CEO, I Can Math.
While attending college at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois, Amanda had the opportunity to work for a national nonprofit that focused on literacy in preschool classrooms. It was through this opportunity that she saw the need for high-quality early childhood programs. With a degree in elementary education and her experience as a preschool teacher, Amanda created I Can Math in collaboration with board member, Adam Goldberg to support preschool classrooms in math education. Her previous work in several nonprofits across the country and her dedication to early childhood education has been intensified by the lack of math education found in preschool classrooms.
She holds a Master’s in Public Service Management from DePaul University and a Master’s in Early Childhood Education from Northern Arizona University.
Originally from Wisconsin, Amanda lives in Chandler with her husband Kevin, daughter Katherine and puggle Rocco.
