Equitable access and opportunity for learning guide the work that I do. As a mathematics teacher, I learned quickly that collaboration was extremely important. I also learned that there were organizations, such as NCSM that could help me in my quest for knowledge and give me the support that I needed to grow. As the Program Director of Middle School Mathematics for the Aldine Independent School District in Houston, Texas, I am able to support teachers through coaching and providing quality professional learning opportunities that include collaboration. Through NCSM, you are able to grow professionally and gain access to a community of learners and resources that supports high-quality teaching and learning for ALL students.
It is an honor to be appointed to serve on the NCSM board as the Secretary for the years 2021-2021. I am looking forward to getting to contribute to an organization that has provided me with guidance in mathematics education.
