Maggie McHugh, La Crosse WI, and Katy Shea, School District of South Milwaukee, received Professional Development Grants. These grants support the efforts of an individual or teams of mathematics educators in the development and implementation of innovative teaching strategies or projects in the field of mathematics. Maggie McHugh, of the LaCrosse Design Institute, was awarded $1500 to attend the 2017 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Conference in San Antonio and learn more about STEM education. Katy Shea, School District of South Milwaukee, received $974 to purchase Inline 100s.
