Greater Cleveland Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Thursday, May 13, 6:30 - 8:00 pm — NCTM President Trena Wilkerson
Not only are mathematical and statistical thinking imperative today but they also provide a space where learners can make sense of their world and experience the joy, wonder and beauty of both mathematics and statistics—an exciting combination! Come join us as we explore problems, tasks, activities, and resources to support engaging each and every PK-12 student in high-quality, learning opportunities where they are empowered and supported as confident and capable thinkers and doers of mathematics and statistics.
Trena Wilkerson, President of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is a mathematics education professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the School of Education at Baylor University in Waco, Texas where she teaches both graduate and undergraduate mathematics education courses and conducts professional development and research. She taught high school mathematics for 18 years. She has published in several of NCTM’s journals and chaired the MTMS journal Editorial Panel and served on the NCTM Board of Directors. She loves teaching and learning mathematics in support of current and future mathematics teachers and leaders! Trena sees teaching mathematics as a journey that we take with our students, our colleagues, friends, family, and more each day, week, month, and year, over our lifetime. She invites you to join her on the journey.
