Equity in Mathematics
I am applying for the 2017 NCTM Prospective Teacher Annual Conference Attendance Award because of my passion for teaching mathematics. I hope to make long lasting connections with educators and researchers in addition to furthering my knowledge of mathematical strategies so I can directly apply it to my future students. I am interested in how teachers enforce equity in their own mathematics classrooms and also how they address teaching mathematics to English Language Learners. I would love to learn about what types of tools and technology are available and applicable in the mathematics classroom and which are the best for respective developmental levels. I hope to participate in a variety of seminars to further my mathematical knowledge and apply that knowledge directly to my own students in addition to sharing new ideas with colleagues.
