Jefferson Middle School math and science teacher Jana Dean will be featured in a free webinar on Thursday, April 13. Dean will share what she has learned about:
- Why Singapore scores so high in math achievement
- The Dutch roots of the most progressive math pedagogy in the world
- What public schools in the U.S. have in common with public schools in South Africa
Join Dean in the 7 p.m. webinar as she recounts traveling last year to Hamburg, Germany to attend the 13th International Congress of Math Educators.
The webinar is hosted by the Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession.
Last fall, Dean was named a finalist for the 2016 Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching. Read more about that honor in an article posted on the district website.
