PORTLAND, Maine (PRWEB) June 16, 2019
Walch Mathematics, the leader in providing tailored curriculum resources to districts and the developer of the ground breaking Curriculum Engine, has appointed Dr. Jennifer Curtis, the President and Founder of Emerald Education, to its Board of Directors. Dr. Curtis will join current board members George Hogan, Ellie Baker, Conall Ryan, and Walch’s CEO Al Noyes in ushering the company through this next period of growth.
“Dr. Curtis is a no-nonsense visionary in the field of math education,” said Al Noyes, “and her experiences in the classroom and as a state mathematics leader will help inform Walch’s product development and priorities. Moreover, she has been involved in the ‘open educational resources’ movement from inception, and our ability to embrace and extend OER is a critical part of what will make the Curriculum Engine successful.”
“I have known of Walch for a number of years now and have been impressed with its focus on high quality, tailored resources. The potential for Walch’s innovative Curriculum Engine is vast,” Curtis emphasized, “as it is the first platform that can actually provide districts and teachers with tools and content to greatly improve their ability to edit and build their own curriculum, something that I expect will be welcomed with enthusiasm!”
In addition to consulting with school districts and supporting their professional development efforts, Curtis is a noted author, most recently of Catalyzing Change in High School Mathematics: Initiating Critical Conversations, which she co-authored with a team from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
