Course Description

'Coaching is the most important work that is done right now and should be spread far and wide.' Steven Katz


Michigan Mathematics Educators (#MichME) is a collaborative networking group where administrators, math coaches, math specialists, and math teachers work together to learn and implement effective teaching and learning of mathematics.

Our hope for the 21-22 school year is to invite a small team math coaches, lead teachers, and administrators from a district/building to learn about 'Quality Implementation' and create a plan for the 22-23 school year.

These teams will collaborate with other districts to define the role of a math coach, reflect on practices, make a plan to implement quality instruction, and improve math learning for ALL students through a systems approach.


While this is a group that will focus on what works in teaching and learning mathematics K-12 and what a support network might be, it will also offer an amazing networking and personal reflection opportunity for all involved.

Don't miss this professional learning opportunity, join today!
