Hello Fellow ICTM Members,
I would like to introduce myself to you. I am Valerie Sitzmann I am replacing Shari Collins, not only on the board of ICTM, but I am also replacing her at NWAEA as a Secondary Math Consultant. I have spent my summer preparing for this new role by attending trainings: SOAR Interventions for Fractions; Cognitively Guided Instruction, and DESMOS. I am looking forward to assisting and supporting teachers and students in the NWAEA with these math interventions. In addition, I am interested in learning more about Illustrative Mathematics and its use and application in the classroom I come to the NWAEA after teaching for 24 years in the classroom. I come to the NWAEA after teaching for 24 years at Kingsley-Pierson Middle School. I look forward to meeting other math teachers from across the state and promoting math.
