I am the 2022 recipient of the Math for America Muller Award for Professional Influence in Education. This award is given to two New York City public school teachers who, during their tenure as MƒA Master Teachers, have influenced the teaching profession in exceptional ways.
Here is the quote I shared in the press release:
“I am deeply honored to receive the MƒA Muller Award. This award reflects not just my efforts but the work of a community that respects the professional expertise of educators so that we can work together to improve math education. Over the years, my colleagues have helped me realize that math should be taught as a language that all students can access. When we teach students how to read, write, and speak math, they strengthen their mathematical confidence and can use it to improve the world.”
