As a math teacher I was very active in the implementation of the new math standards in NYC public schools for 20 years. I attended various math workshops offered by the DOE of NYC all affiliated with various New York City colleges. As a retired, 20 years veteran of NYC DOE I am very proud of these accomplishments.
