I am seeking this office because I believe in CPAM’s mission to influence teaching mathematics to promote and provide appropriate mathematical experiences for students. I will utilize my vast network of educators and education stakeholders in advising the board about pertinent elementary education issues. Strengths I will bring with me include recognized as a collaborative leader, and passionate educator at the local, state, national, and international levels, and an unwavering commitment to promoting mathematics education.
I am seeking this office as I have been a dedicated member of NCTM since I first began teaching in 1989. I would be honored to serve CPAM and serve as a liaison between NCTM and CPAM and other groups we need to work with. I will work hard to continue our strong connections and membership with NCTM for our group. I am very passionate, energetic teacher and I will bring my positivity and diligence to this position.
I am seeking this position to promote the connection between NCTM and CPAM. I have been a member of NCTM since 1985 and CPAM since 2009. I am the NCTM Representative for the Idaho Council of Teachers of Mathematics and can use my knowledge of NCTM to serve both organizations. I am a strong advocate for students and teachers and the mathematical training they both need.
I believe everyone is capable of success in mathematics, and as math educators we must continually strive to find equitable and innovative practices that inspire all students to interact in meaningful activities and discussions centered around math. I am compelled to work with coaches and teachers to create math classrooms that are engaging, relevant and student-centered. I have enjoyed my first term on the CPAM board, and welcome the opportunity to continue networking with colleagues from across the nation, be an advocate for the PAEMST award, and represent CPAM as an ambassador for secondary math education.
I am seeking this office in order to become more involved in CPAM. After teaching overseas for 30 years I am back in the States. I intend to fully execute the duties of this position, keep accurate records, and inform members of our financial status as required by the position description.
I am excited to be a part of a dynamic and inspirational group of educators. I have always valued membership in professional organizations and helping to steer them into the future. As treasurer, I will ensure that CPAM is fiscally strong and taken care of. I have served in different leadership roles with many organizations, and have learned that listening, reflecting, planning, and doing are instrumental to a successful leader and organization.
