Math Teacher Leader Fellowship

The expansive and beautiful nature of mathematics should be experienced by all students. Not only do all students need math, mathematics needs all students. Our collective future depends on this inclusive vision of mathematics.

In order to build Sonoma County’s capacity to deliver on this promise, SCOE is launching the Math Teacher Leader Fellowship. We will cultivate mathematics leadership in classroom teachers across the K-12 spectrum.

Teachers selected to be a part of this fellowship will meet 4 times over the course of the 2021-22 school year. Sessions will be facilitated by Josh Deis and Emily Akinshin in partnership with math leaders throughout the state. The fellowship will provide a provocative learning experience that builds the participants' instructional and leadership skills with opportunities to apply new learning in your teaching context.
The fellowship will emphasize activating the mathematical agency of students who are far from justice, especially those whose racial identity is not represented in the dominant culture. This is complex work. Together we will examine our own practice and understand our role as informal and formal leaders in math education.
