TEACHER Shannon Monroe accepts a regional math award and congratulatory mug from Superintendent Dan Goldman at last week’s School Board meeting.
The Oregon Council of Teachers of Mathematics presented Shannon Monroe with the Math Excellence Award for Area 12 at last week’s School Board meeting. Every year the council selects an outstanding teacher from different areas of Oregon. Area 12 includes the Gorge from Cascade Locks to Arlington.
“Monroe teaches third grade at Parkdale Elementary School (and) models lifelong learning,” said Jane Osborne, district math coach. “She is always eager to learn, attending conferences and reading information to help her teaching and to help others.”
Osborne said Monroe “provides great leadership within her school and throughout the district. Peers frequently visit to observe and learn instructional strategies to support all learners in math. During our district’s math adoption last year and the implementation this year, she has offered insight, leadership and modeling for others. She is a great math leader in Hood River County School District that is extremely deserving of this award.”
