Congratulations! You have been selected as a member of the 2017 SCCTM Leadership Fellows. As such, you will participate in a two-day leadership institute designed to allow you a chance to examine your leadership strengths, learn more about SCCTM and NCTM, enhance your role as an advocate for our profession, and discuss issues facing mathematics teachers in South Carolina. The hope is that you will be ready to serve as an ambassador for the organization, help others see its value, and increase your involvement in the SCCTM/NCTM.It continues on with:
We will be assembling a terrific group of mathematics educators from across the Palmetto State. Along with the district-level educators from Beaufort, Berkeley, and Charleston Counties, twenty-four mathematics teachers representing 23 schools comprise this year's team, including: Robert Smalls International Academy in Beaufort County, Berkeley County’s Philip Simmons Middle School, Westview Middle School, and Cross Elementary; Charleston County’s James Island Middle School, Military Magnet Academy, and Northwoods Middle School; Horry County’s North Myrtle Beach High School, North Myrtle Beach Middle School, and Ocean Bay Middle; Carolina Springs Middle School and Pleasant Hill Middle School in Lexington One, Richland One’s A.C. Flora High School, Alcorn Middle School, Hand Middle School and W. A Perry Middle School; Richland Two’s Blythewood Academy, Longleaf Middle, Ridge View High School, and Spring Valley; RP Dawkins Middle School in Spartanburg Six, Spartanburg High School in Spartanburg Seven, and Sumter’s Ebenezer Middle School.
I will be joining my district math curriculum coordinator as well. It is being held in Columbia, South Carolina for two day in late February. I am really looking forward to this event. A great networking and collaboration opportunity - now I just need to get approval to take the first day of the conference off since it's a Friday and I'll need a substitute.
