Deepening Mathematics Understanding for Elementary Teachers
With the support of an NCTM Grant for Mathematics Study I plan to complete courses in the Deepening Mathematics Understanding for Teachers program at Portland State University. Upon completion I will demonstrate having met the standards for an Elementary Mathematics Specialist Certificate. My goal in this endeavor is to develop the skills and expertise to support students, teachers, administrators and families to build capacity for high level mathematics instruction for all students at the elementary level. In and out of the classroom, I hope to contribute to ensuring that all students have access to high quality math experiences including effective instruction and high expectations for understanding and sense-making.
