Whitlock and Patten Receive SREB Award

The Outstanding Local Trainer Award recognizes local trainers who have supported implementation of SREB’s powerful literacy and mathematics practices through observing classrooms, providing effective feedback and assisting teachers and principals with the utilization of research-based literacy and mathematics tools and strategies. Each has served as an outstanding role model for other instructional support staff, say SREB literacy and mathematics trainers Pamela Broome and Gail Snider.

SREB’s powerful literacy practices empower teachers to build meaningful literacy-based, standards-aligned assignments and enable teachers to take ownership of their own professional growth to drive more powerful outcomes for their students. SREB’s powerful mathematics practices provide teachers with instructional strategies that help them implement college- and career-readiness standards, engage students in a productive struggle, and build students’ fluency of procedural skills while deepening their mathematical reasoning and understanding.

SREB’s College- and Career-Readiness Standards Networking Conference has energized thousands of teachers by creating a collaborative environment that builds teacher confidence and student learning through powerful literacy and math practices.

The Southern Regional Education Board works with states and educators to improve public education at every level, from early childhood through postsecondary education. Learn more about SREB at sreb.org.
