 Keynote Speaker

Dr. Imani Masters Goffney currently works as an Assistant Professor of  Mathematics Education at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her research focuses on mathematics instruction and on interventions designed to improve its quality and effectiveness, especially for students not traditionally served well by our educational system. In particular, she studies the ways in which teachers use mathematical knowledge for teaching in equitable ways. Her research contributes to a growing body of work that strives to better understand the role of content knowledge for improving student achievement and expands on understanding of how issues of race, culture, and social class intersect with students’ opportunities for learning mathematics. She currently manages her own research projects with funding from NSF and private foundations. She recently co-edited a book published by NCTM entitled, Rehumanizing Mathematics for Black, Indigenous, and Latinx Students(2018). She is an active member in AERA, NCTM, and AMTE serving in leadership roles for each of these organizations. 


Register for the 10th Annual WMC Mathematical Proficiency for Every Student (MPES) conference, and join national and state educators to discuss detailed action steps for creating equitable mathematics classrooms, which “provide every student with access to meaningful mathematics by leveraging students’ strengths (mathematical competencies), drawing on students as resources of knowledge, and challenging spaces of marginality” (NCTM, 2017).   Administrators attend FREE with one school/district paid registration (registration code will be in confirmation email)!
