Candidate Statement

No profession is comprised of people more passionate, caring, and hardworking than the profession of teacher! Seldom are these remarkable individuals thanked or acknowledged for their labor. GCTM’s Honors and Awards ceremony during the annual Georgia Mathematics Conference is an opportunity to offer deserving educators recognition and appreciation. It has been a joy to be the current GCTM Vice-President of Honors and Awards and I look forward to the possibility of continuing in this capacity.
