Local Math Champion
At their spring meeting, the Northwest Louisiana Mathematics Association gave two "Champions for Mathematics Education" awards. Judith Covington, associate professor of mathematics at LSUS, received one of these awards. Dr Covington is an active member of both the Mathematical Association of America and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Dr Covington received this award in recognition of her many years of preparing teachers of mathematics and her most recent work in creating the North Louisiana Math Teachers' Circle (NLMTC). The NLMTC is a group of middle school mathematics teachers from Bossier, Caddo and Desoto parishes that gather monthly to have a great meal and work together solving math problems. Those interested in learning more about the NLMTC should contact Judith Covington at firstname.lastname@example.org.
