Teachers at School

The South Jersey Math Partnership (SJMP) at Rowan University is an intensive professional development project involving Rowan University and sixteen school districts in South Jersey. The Partnership’s original goal was to improve the quality of middle grades mathematics teachers by deepening their understanding of mathematical content and pedagogy.

SJMP has since grown to include a focus on science and is now expanding to provide a focus on mathematics and science for teachers in the early elementary grades.

Congratulations to Evergreen third grade teacher, Kathy Estep, who recently received notification that she has been accepted into Cohort 1 of the SJMP program for elementary school teachers. This cohort will start its work this summer.

Woodbury Public School teachers have been very active members of SJMP efforts. The following teachers have participated in the middle school programs:

Tobey Realley. Terry Stebich, Robyn Sole, and Nicole Daisey

Susan Berting and Cindy Cammarota
