Little Kids, Big Math: What a Secondary Math Teacher Learned from Elementary
Friday, December 9, 2022
7:00 PM

As secondary math teachers, what can we learn from K–5 math classrooms? A lot! Annie learned so much when she left her middle school classroom of 12 years and sat on the rug in primary classrooms as a math coach. In fact, what she learned from elementary math actually makes her a better and more effective secondary math teacher. She’s grateful that she had the opportunity to see the entire progression and would love to share some of those ideas with you during this talk.

Annie has a passion for working with teachers to give all students an equitable and high-quality mathematics education. Currently, she is
providing math coaching and professional development for teachers in the Chicago area through the Metro Chicago Mathematics Initiative out of the University of Illinois Chicago. As a facilitator of professional learning, through a variety of organizations as well as local and
national conferences, she has worked with hundreds of teachers to connect and reflect on their practice. Annie brings experience to professional learning from her 12 years in the classroom as well as 5 years coaching and serving as a district math coordinator. She is also a past president of the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics and a Desmos fellow.
