Teachers Participate in "College Ready Summit"
Wilkes-Barre Area Math teachers were recently invited to participate in a “College Ready Summit” sponsored by the Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges. Wilkes-Barre Area has partnered with Luzerne County Community College for the third year in a row to offer a new math course geared to preparing students for the true college math experience. Being the only high school in Pennsylvania to partner with a community college, we were invited to speak about the “College Ready Math” course we have created and share how we best feel we can prepare students to transfer from high school to college. Since starting this course, two other local high schools are now using this model.
Participating in the event from left to right are seated: Matthew Mill, Mackin High School math teacher, Lauren Wolfer, GAR High School Math Teacher, Jennifer Perks, Coughlin High School Math Teacher, Mary Krolewski, Meyers High School Math Teacher. Standing: Corinne Drost, Secondary Math Supervisor, Nicole Saporito, LCCC Math Department Chair.
