Minneapolis Public Middle School Teachers Patty DeJarlais (Keewaydin) Chris Wernimont (Anwatin)
In the summer of 2010, we initiated a professional support group of 24 members, consisting of UST math professors and Twin Cities middle school math teachers. At a summer retreat and dinner meetings throughout the year, we discuss mathematics, solve problems, and work to enhance the teaching of middle school mathematics. We are part of the expanding national Math Teachers' Circle Network.
