Dear Colleagues and Friends,
I am excited and honored to serve as your FCTM President for the years of 2020 and 2021. Since 1966, FCTM has endeavored to enhance the math education of students by supporting the professional development and amplifying the voice of Florida’s math educators. I look forward to continuing this storied tradition over the next two years in partnership with our FCTM Board of Directors and dedicated FCTM members like you.
As we enter a new year, I am thankful for FCTM’s impact throughout 2019. It was certainly a year to remember! It was inspiring to see so many of you engage and collaborate through multiple FCTM initiatives:
I would like to thank our immediate past president, Diana Snider, our 2019 FCTM Board members, our Annual Conference Committee and other Special Committee members for their time, passion, and creativity for bringing all of this to fruition.
Moving forward, I’m excited to continue looking for ways to improve our products and services to assist as you take your next step in your math leadership journey. In that effort, our board is pursuing the following goals this year
Thank you for being a devoted math educator and choosing a career that invests in the lives of students. Florida’s future is brighter thanks to your continued efforts and we look forward to partnering with you soon. Please know we are open to your suggestions, questions and concerns, and I hope that you will reach out to me in the coming year. I look forward to seeing you at this year’s events and appreciate your support of FCTM!
