Professional Development and Networking 

  • Student learning of mathematics “depends fundamentally on what happens inside the classroom as teachers and learners interact over the curriculum.”

(Ball & Forzani, 2011, p. 17)


  • “Teaching has 6 to 10 times as much impact on achievement as all other factors combined ... Just three years of effective teaching accounts on average for an improvement of 35 to 50 percentile points.”

Schmoker (2006, p. 9)
