Meet the Twig Team: Introducing Penny Dowdy

Tell us a bit about your role and how you became a part of the team at Twig.

I am responsible for planning and leading the development of a math product for Twig Education. I joined Twig at the end of July 2020.

In three words, how would you best describe Twig Education to our followers?

Innovative, engaging, and thoughtful.

What is your favorite thing about your role at Twig?

I love the team that we have put together and the overall team at the company. There is a marvelous synergy among everyone I’ve worked with that results in something that is even better than great individual contributions.

What helps motivate you on those days when you need a little push?

I taught for years before I moved into educational publishing. Keeping the wide variety of students I had and their needs in the back of my mind keeps me motivated to develop content that “moves the needle” in terms of how teachers teach and how students learn.

If you weren’t working at Twig Education, what would you be doing?

I would be restoring and up-cycling furniture and home decor.

If you could go back in time and give advice to your 16-year-old self, what would it be?

Go easier on yourself!

Could you share an interesting fact about yourself? Something that we don’t already know about you?

I won vacations three separate times by answering trivia questions from “Live with Regis and Kelly”— a daytime talk show that used to be on television in the US.
