Dr. Hui Fang Huang “Angie” Su is a Professor of Mathematics Education for Nova Southeastern University's Fischler School of Education and Human Services.  She is the creator of Project MIND - Math Is Not Difficult®, a K -12 mathematics enhancement project currently being implemented in hundreds of classrooms throughout the United States.  In Florida, Project MIND was a multi-million dollar project funded by the South Florida Annenberg Challenge, the Toppel Family Foundation, the Quantum Foundation, National Science Foundation, JM Family Enterprise, Inc., the School District of Palm Beach County, Broward County Public Schools, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, and the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.  Project MIND was a state of Florida approved provider for Supplemental Educational Services under the No Child Left Behind Act.

Prior to becoming a Professor for Nova Southeastern University, Dr. Su was the K-12 Mathematics Specialist in the division of Academic Programs for the Palm Beach County School District. In addition to providing assistance in mathematics curriculum and instructions to the schools, Su also designed and created practice tests for the district to help teachers identify the needed skill areas for their students in order to prepare them for the state’s standardized test.  Su developed a website for the Division of Academic Programs, and served as the division’s web master.  Dr. Su’s computer experience and training came from her graduate studies at Texas A & M University where she majored in Computer Science and minored in Industrial Engineering. 

Partnering with the Annenberg Foundation, the Quantum Foundation, and the Toppel Family Foundation, Su initiated the state’s first Teacher Incentive program.  As an Instructional Specialist in the Palm Beach County School District’s Department of School Improvement and Staff Development, Su designed the Technical Assistance Plan for the District to help students in critically low-performing schools improve their achievement.  In this role, she coordinated and organized the site review teams, including managing their schedules, visits, and responsibilities, created a teacher resource book, and organized a community and district mentoring project for the schools.

Dr. Su is a member of the new Florida mathematics standards framers and writers team.   She has received numerous awards and recognitions, including the prestigious Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching from the National Science Foundation, the William T. Dwyer Award for Excellence in Teaching, Palm Beach County Elementary Mathematics Teacher of the Year, Wal Mart Teacher of the Year, State of Florida’s Little RedSchool House Award for principals (for Project MIND), and the Women of Distinction Award from the Soroptomist International.  In 2002, Su was name one of the fifty Most Successful Business Women in South Florida by the Fast Track Magazine.  She received the 2003 March of Dimes Women of Distinction Award in Broward County.  In addition, Su was named 2003 Professor of the Year by Fischler Graduate School of Education and was one of the five finalists as the University Professor of the Year.  She was also the recipient of several president’s research awards.  In 2005, Su has received the Governor’s Points of Light Award for her innovative work with the homeless women.  This award led to the appointment by Governor Bush to serve on his council for the homelessness.  In 2007, Su received Sun-Sentinel Publisher’s Community Service Shining Star Award.Su is the recipient of the 2009 Mathematics Teacher Educator of the Year from FAMTE.  Su has appeared in numerous television programs, including NBC’s national Nightly News, and regional and local news segments, as well as more than fifty newspaper articles and magazines (including the RedBook Magazine) for her expertise in mathematics education, curriculum development, early childhood education, gifted education, and child rearing.  Author of numerous teacher resource books and college textbook in mathematics education, Su shares her expertise with educators, community leaders, parents, and lawmakers through workshops, seminars, conferences, journal publications, and classroom demonstrations.  Su is a known national consultant in mathematics education.  She is also listed in the Marquis Who’s Who in Engineering Science, Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who is American Education, Who’s Who of American Women, Who’s Who in the World, and International Who’s Who of Historical Society
