A West Liberty Elementary School teacher has earned a Math4Life grant that will greatly benefit her students!!!
Congratulations to West Liberty fourth and fifth grade teacher Brandy Lackie who earned a $875 Math4Life grant. West Liberty Principal Drew Villani said Lackie is a great teacher who works hard to secure grants that will benefit her students.
“I’m very proud of Mrs. Lackie.” Villani said. “She has already won two grants so far this year, and we are currently working on writing a few more. Mrs. Lackie is always searching for ways to make math engaging for our learners. My fourth and fifth grade students are benefiting from her hard work and enjoy coming to math class.”
West Virginia’s math4Life initiative is a statewide effort to improve student mathematics performance. The WVDE seeks to work with counties and schools throughout the state to institute best practices, challenging pedagogy, and student engagement strategies to improve students’ mathematics achievement. The math4life statewide plan is designed around a statewide leadership team that works collaboratively to create a system of mathematical improvement from the state level to the district level to the school level and, ultimately, to the student level.
The counties leverage the West Virginia College-and Career-Readiness Standards for Mathematics to select their instructional materials and to implement math programs, technology supports, and community engagement practices to market their local math4life initiatives.
