Megan Franke is a Professor of Education at UCLA. Dr. Franke, along with her colleagues, supports and studies teachers as they make use of research based information about the development of children's mathematical thinking (CGI) with attention to how together we can challenge existing school structures and create opportunities for marginalized students to learn mathematics with understanding. Her research work to support teachers, schools and communities was recognized with the AERA Research into Practice Award and she was elected to the National Academy of Education.
Join us at the 2020 KCM Conference to hear Dr. Franke and other informative and inspiring speakers.
KCM's own Regional Consultant Julie Adams was recently named the 2019 recipient of the Ann S. Booth MESA award by the Kentucky Council of Teachers of Mathematics (KCTM)! The MESA (Mathematics Education Service and Achievement) award is given by KCTM to outstanding mathematics teachers (K-16), education professionals and business leaders in recognition of standout service to the mathematics community.
We are beaming with excitement to share that our 2020 conference - ILLUMINATE: Gathering evidence to Assess Mathematical Understanding - will take place March 9th-10th at the Marriott Griffin Gate in Lexington! We look forward to seeing our community of shining math educators next March!
