WI Math CNECT Ignite Session


We’d like to announce our 2023-24 academic year kick-off event for WI Math CNECT.  Our focus will be getting to know each other and talk about the upcoming year. 

WI Math CNECT Ignite Session

  • Wednesday August 23, 7-8 pm
  • Virtually over Zoom

We have invited several exemplary and award-winning math teachers from around the state to join us to give us their best advice on starting your career teaching math. We plan to have a mix of elementary and secondary teachers, as well as veteran and early-careers joining us. Each will get just 2-3 minutes to run through their best advice, and then we’ll have some break-out sessions where you can chat with these teachers.

Our “celebrity guest teachers” will include:

  • Melissa Sperle, 5th grade teacher, Lancaster Community Schools
  • Katelyn Winkel-Simmerman, Middle School Math Teacher, Cedar Grove-Belgium MS (and 2023 DPI WI Teacher of the Year!)
  • Mel Jemiola, High School math teacher, Sun Prairie HS
  • Dave Benz, High School Math Teacher, Golda Meir School in Milwaukee

This will be a fun way to build up each other’s energy and connect as we prepare for fall and the creation of a support network within our first few years teaching.

More information will follow on our WI Math CNECT page for more information!

We hope you can join us on August 23 at 7:00 pm!
