MATHTEACH Collaborative presents: Professional Development Series
The Texas Graduate Center (TGC), in partnership with Region One GEAR UP, ended its 2015 MATHTEACH Collaborative Series with Maria Pizano and Dr. John Boller. Pizano, formerly of the Harvard Family Research Project, presented to over 50 parental engagement liaisons on “Maximizing the Impact of Parental Engagement.” The workshop provided methodologies to improve parental outreach in school districts across the Rio Grande Valley.
Dr. Boller, a distinguished Professor of Mathematics at the University of Chicago, spoke to an audience of Rio Grande Valley Math teachers on “Algebra, Geometry, Calculus and the Unity of the High School Curriculum.” This was Dr. Boller’s second visit to Region One as part of the MATHTEACH Collaborative Professional Development Series. Over 35 teachers were in attendance.
The Texas Graduate Center is a component of the Texas Valley Communities Foundation and has been established to support programs in higher education. TGC offers distance learning graduate programs from outstanding universities, such as the Harvard Extension School, in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
