NCSM is an excellent organization for mathematics leaders, and I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to serve as the Membership and Volunteer Coordinator. As a building leader and mathematics leader, NCSM has been a great resource for me personally in my own work. The wealth of knowledge and support that comes from the conferences, events, social media and online resources is truly a gift.
I joined NCSM after starting my leadership journey as assistant principal. In my role as assistant principal and then principal, I also supported our district math leadership team that made instructional and curricular decisions. Joining NCSM was one of the best things I could have done to support my instructional leadership within my building and with the district team. Through the annual conference and regional conferences, I engaged in learning opportunities that stretched and shaped my own understanding of mathematics education today. The support and connections to other leaders within mathematics education have also been an invaluable resource. They have provided me with new ideas and helped guide my decisions in my own district. I am grateful for the vision and work of NCSM and I honored to serve as the Membership and Volunteer Coordinator.
