Lowell Teacher Honored for Contributions to Math Education

A Lowell Middle School teacher who uses journaling and project-based learning to help students see the usefulness of math was recently honored for her efforts. Katey Johnson was given the Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics Region 4 Director’s Award at the annual MCTM conference Aug. 6 at Hope College.

The organization recognized Johnson for her leadership and contributions to math education. Johnson, who has taught middle school math and science for five years, serves on her school’s leadership team.

She has created an online summer math program and worked to increase the rigor of Lowell Middle’s math courses to align with the new Common Core State Standards.
