·In the 2023-2024 academic year, Central Carolina RESA (CCRESA) hosted four Math Badge cohorts, and the Southeast Education Alliance (SEA) hosted one cohort with plans for a second in May.

·Since October 2022, over 230 educators have actively engaged in the NCCAT Math Badge, fostering excellence in math education.


 Building Thinking Classrooms Success:


·"Building Thinking Classrooms" introduces dynamic, research-based instructional practices that actively involve students as mathematical thinkers.

·This innovative approach includes tasks that encourage mathematical thinking while students collaborate in random groups at vertical non-permanent surfaces.

·Randolph County and Kannapolis Middle School have kicked off 2024 with a strong focus on Building Thinking Classrooms with NCCAT.


Outreach Beyond Borders:


·Emily has extended her expertise to diverse platforms, presenting Building Thinking Classrooms at the AIM Conference, NCCTM state math conference, and conducting several residential seminars on the topic.
