I just happened to catch her on PBS' Here and now on Sep 4, 2023.
Being a math major and wanting to be a teacher myself I was impressed.

I just caut the end and liked here take on calculus and life.
"In Differential Calculus, we divide segments into infinitesimally small moments in order to analyze precisely what is happening at a single point in time. In Integral Calculus, we accumulate those moments through infinite summations. This unit exposes the lesson of connecting not only to each other but to the very depth of calculus. We differentiate: I hold each learner’s story, moment by moment. Then we integrate: we come together, or accumulate, and connect as a community, knowing we belong to each other. "
