Gai Williams started her teaching career in the Palm Beach County School system as a mathematics teacher at Boca Raton High School. She taught high school for over 29 years. In addition to teaching at Boca Raton High School, she taught at Atlantic High, Spanish River, and was the first teacher hired to open Wellington High School. She was an active member of PBCCTM, writing the “Mathagram” for many years, developing the PROMISE awards, writing questions for the middle school mathematics tournament, and developing our Fall math conferences. Gai worked on district curriculum each summer since 1983. She was a pioneer for technology in our district and spent many Saturdays conducting workshops for our teachers.
First, proudly, Gai was a teacher; she had dedicated her life to children. Not only did she spend countless hours before and after school mentoring her students, but actually taped each lesson so that students who had missed class could easily catch up. She was instrumental in bringing Mu Alpha Theta to Wellington High.
PBCCTM is proud to honor Gai Williams’ memory by recognizing students that are hardworking and striving for excellence in mathematics.
The Program to Recognize Outstanding Mathematical Interest, Success, and Enthusiasm (PROMISE) is a project of the Palm Beach County Council of Teachers of Mathematics (PBCCTM). The purpose of the program is to promote interest and recognize achievement in mathematics.
Gai Williams was devoted to mathematics education and has left a legacy that PBCCTM strives to promote. The PROMISE Awards were created to recognize students who demonstrate hard work and perseverance. PROMISE Certificates were created by Gai Williams to provide a means of recognizing those students who may struggle with mathematics but who understand that determination and effort can compound to create success.
