Become a School Leader in Mathematics Education


The Need for Math Leaders
in K-6

Because elementary teachers must study and teach many subjects, it may be difficult for them to develop the needed expertise in mathematics and the teaching of mathematics. A trained math leader working with teachers can build knowledge, capacity, and skills, increasing the effectiveness of all. Math leaders can also work directly with students (for example as the math teacher for all of the 3rd graders) therefore sharing their specialized knowledge with more students and as an alternative to attempting to increase the math content knowledge of all teachers.*

Please see the joint position statement on developing School Leaders in Mathematics Education from Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE), National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM), and Association of State Supervisors of Mathematics (ASSM).
