My support is steadfast for vertical teaming among teachers to ensure students and teachers are consistently prepared for the next academic level.
When I was named the High School Mathematics Coordinator for the DeKalb County School District, I received a membership in the Georgia Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (GCSM) organization.

My NCSM membership has provided a wealth of information, guidance, and support about being an effective mathematics leader, I have especially appreciated the Leadership Academies.
