I am retired now after working as a mathematics educator for 38 years, I still do some consulting facilitating professional development sessions for teachers. As I strive to provide leadership for mathematics educators I rely on NCSM to keep me informed about the latest research and programs available. NCSM resources are invaluable as tools for me to support teachers and district mathematics leaders.
I have been a member of NCSM for many years. When I was working in higher education with pre-service teachers and teachers pursuing graduate degrees I came to depend on the research disseminated at the NCSM Annual Conference and in NCSM publications to inform my work. Several years ago, I was asked to work with a team on the Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Project and it was a wonderful experience. I have served on the NCSM Board as Regional Director for Southern 2 Region and found working with my colleagues at the regional and national level to be very rewarding. I am excited to served NCSM as treasurer and continue to learn from and collaborate with my colleagues from across the country. I never go away from an NCSM Annual Meeting without feeling renewed and excited to continue my work with other leaders in mathematics education.
