2011 Teacher Winner
School: Springdale Park Elementary, First Grade
Project: Applied Math
Springdale Park’s vision is to cultivate a high-performing community of learners where teaching and learning is connected to the global world and students are challenged to reach their highest potential. The goal of this project is to prepare students to apply concepts from math content standards in real-world situations. Students will be introduced to math concepts using math literature from a newly-generated math library, interactive Promethean Board flipcharts, newly-purchased manipulatives and taking field trips to local businesses.
