the team math teacher leader academy
The TEAM-Math Teacher Leader Academy…

is creating a cadre of full-time teachers in high-needs schools who have the potential to make a significant impact on mathematics instruction among their colleagues.

Fellows work together to improve their own mathematical and pedagogical content knowledge and learn how to effectively lead efforts for improving instruction in their school and district by working on an advanced degree in the field and participating in leadership workshops with colleagues.

team math curriculum analysis project
TEAM-Math Curriculum Analysis Project

This project conducted a review of textbook materials for their alignment with the new Alabama College and Career Ready Standards, Alabama’s state course of study that is based on the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.

Over 50 teachers from 14 districts in the area participated in reviewing textbook series across the grades, resulting in a final report released to local schools and districts to aid them in their review of textbooks.
