As an NCSM member and educator of over 30 years, it is a true privilege to network with leaders in mathematics education at the NCSM conferences. Membership in NCSM allows access to a wealth of information via all of the outstanding resources provide by NCSM. I am thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to serve on the NCSM Board as the Awards Chair. A key responsibility in this position is working with a committee to recognize outstanding leaders and contributors to mathematics education. I look forward to contributing to the work of NCSM in recognizing exceptional leaders and contributors in the field of mathematics with the Ross Taylor/Glenn Gilbert National Leadership Award and the Kay Gilliland Equity Lecture Award. These awards recognize those who have made substantial contributions to the mathematics education leadership field. In addition to recognizing these significant contributors, the Awards Chair's role also includes awarding Iris Carl Travel Grants for new members to attend the NCSM Annual Conference and experience the wonderful benefits this organization has to offer.
I have been actively involved in mathematics and science education for over 30 years. Currently I serve as a mathematics consultant in central Michigan where I am responsible for providing educational services to fourteen school districts. Along with my responsibilities as a mathematics consultant, I am also the Director of the Capital Area Science and Mathematics Center which provides mathematics and science support services to both teachers and students for five counties in central Michigan. These five counties serve a student population of approximately 90,000 students and 2,000 teachers of grades PK-12. The resources and support that are provided through the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics network is invaluable in allowing me to meet the needs of constituents across such a large area with many diverse needs. I have counted on these resources as I have presented at local, state and national conferences on topics including instructional strategies, formative and summative assessment and the Common Core State Standards. Whether I am speaking to administrators, teachers, or parents I can always count on the vast resources provided through membership in NCSM.
