I believe in the power of mathematics education. Mathematics education is the place where students have the opportunity to solve problems, critique each other and ask questions. It should not be a place where students are consistently silent, watching an adult do math. There is a lot of work to be done in the current state of mathematics; it is seen for some students as the gatekeeper for college and careers. I hope for a day where students see the value and beauty of mathematics instead of list of rules and procedures.

As a first year administrator I was encouraged to attend the NCSM conference by a close mentor. She mentioned how important it was to grow professionally and network with colleagues throughout the nation. After a few more conversations I decided to attend my first NCSM conference. I couldn't believe the quality of sessions at the NCSM conference. Every session was catered to leading and supporting mathematics teachers. I left with many ideas to support teachers in my role, as well as a new group of colleagues to ask questions to throughout the year. I haven't stopped attending the NCSM national conference. I still leave inspired every year!
