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.
