Equitable Learning Opportunities: Make your Vision a Reality

Mona Toncheff, NCSM President

Attention BOLD Mathematics leaders, teacher leaders and coaches! To meet the vision of each and every student learning mathematics at high levels, an understanding of the framework for leadership and how to effectively lead mathematics programs are critical. We will collectively explore how to build a culture of learning for all, discuss our beliefs about mathematics learning, and have impactful conversations on how to align practices and policies with productive beliefs.

In this session, participants will address the following essential questions:

  • How can mathematics leaders recognize and address unproductive beliefs in order to influence change?
  • How can leaders design structures that lead to high levels of student and adult learning?
  • How can leaders engage in a continuous improvement effort that leads to the identification of strengths as well as opportunities for growth in mathematics teaching and learning?

Mona Toncheff, MEd, a mathematics education consultant and author, works with educators and leaders nationwide to build collaborative teams - empowering them with effective strategies for aligning curriculum, instruction, and assessment to ensure all students receive high-quality mathematics instruction. A passionate educator working with diverse populations in a Title 1 District, she previously worked as both a mathematics teacher and as a mathematics content specialist for the Phoenix Union High School District in Arizona. In the latter role, she provided professional development to high school teachers and administrators related to quality mathematics teaching and learning and working in effective collaborative teams.

Mona is also the President of NCSM and has served NCSM in the roles of secretary (2007–2008), director of Western Region 1 (2012–2015), Second Vice-President (2015-2016), First Vice President (2016-2017), Marketing and eNews Editor (2017-2018), and President-Elect (2018-2019). In addition to her work with NCSM, Mona is also the current past-president of Arizona Mathematics Leaders (2018-2019). She was named 2009 Phoenix Union High School District Teacher of the Year and in 2014, she received the Copper Apple Award for leadership in mathematics from the Arizona Association of Teachers of Mathematics.
