Congratulations to Angela Pratt! 

During her 31 years of teaching, Angela has taught in Sanford, Florida and in RSU 22 for 17 years as a grade three teacher, for the past 4 years focusing on math and science. This model has allowed her to delve deep into the content and to reach students at their academic levels 

through guided groups formed based on academic strengths and weaknesses. As math committee chairperson, she uses data and current research to identify next steps in teacher training, and offers ongoing professional development at Weatherbee School. As a result, math teachers are well versed in "Guid

ed Math" and the "Math Practices".  Angela expresses her greatest joys of teaching as those moments when students are seen pushing themselves to new personal heights. 

Please be sure to nominate your favorite math teacher for our special recognition. All nominees are placed in a drawing for some special prizes at the end of the year!
