Congratulations to the following teacher leaders who will be representing CMS at the Early Math and Literacy Convening provided by the Skeebo Foundation:

  • Holly Bryant (Parkside Elementary)
  • Ashley Emmanuel (Lawrence Orr Elementary)
  • Sarah Hoyle (Nations Ford Elementary)
  • Montana Lowe (Piney Grove Elementary)

This convening is focused on strengthening early math and literacy instruction along the birth to third grade continuum in North Carolina. The research is clear that math and literacy skills in the earliest years are highly predictive of long-term academic achievement and opportunity.
