A Community for New and Early Career Teachers

WI Math CNECT (Community for New and Early Career Teachers) is designed to address questions and challenges of beginning K-12 mathematics teachers. Our mission is to support you as you navigate your first years of teaching.

This group will provide a space for new and early career math teachers to share both struggles and successes, get access to resources and advice from CNECT program mentors, and be part of a community of social and professional support.

During the 2023-24 school year we will hold monthly online support meetings that will include discussion of teaching issues, sharing of effective strategies, and opportunities for fun and relaxed social interaction.

WI Math CNECT is a joint project of the Wisconsin Mathematics Council and the Wisconsin Association for Mathematics Teachers Educators. The project leaders are Eric Kuennen and Jen Szydlik of UW Oshkosh, Matt Chedister of UW Lacrosse, and Lisa Hennessey of Sun Prairie School District.
