I began my career decades ago with the same passion for mathematics education that I have now and the same belief that each and every student can develop as a mathematician.
After various roles in K-12 school districts, I now work to support teachers and leaders as they strive to enact equitable teaching practices. Since I joined NCSM – my first year as a math coach – I have turned to the myriad of resources NCSM provides to leaders of mathematics education for my own professional learning and growth. The journals, podcasts, online resources, and annual conferences provide practice-based and evidence-based support for all leaders.
I look forward to giving back to NCSM and continuing the bold leadership it provides as the Regional Director for the Eastern I region.
NCSM fully understands the system of mathematics education in which we currently function – one that perpetuates racial and systemic inequities, and also understands that the time to dismantle that system is now.
Through professional learning opportunities, conferences, digital media, and publications, NCSM provides resources for all mathematics educators to engage in bold leadership. NCSM is committed to enacting belief systems to dismantle structures that deny access, and offer strategies that promote and develop equitable teaching practices.
I’m honored to be part of NCSM’s bold leadership and strategic initiatives as I serve as a Regional Director for Eastern 1.
