Growth Mindset + High Quality Instruction = Excellence for all Students in Mathematics

District Math Facilitators, Patty Driscoll, Karen Berg and Stephanie DeMatteo, were gifted a professional development grant. This grant will allow teachers in the district to participate in a project which focuses on the work of Jo Boaler, a professor of mathematics education at Stanford University. Boaler is the author of many books that aim to increase public understanding of the importance of effective mathematics teaching. The professional development opportunity for Dover math teachers in the district will focus on mathematical achievement, educational practices and how to foster growth in all students.
